Harvard Alumni in Wine and Food
HAWF strives to maintain, expand, and promote an international network of Harvard professionals in the field of wine, food, and hospitality; we include winemakers, chefs, investors, editors, authors, restaurant managers, communications experts, and enthusiastic amateurs. As the HAA’s newest SIG, we have functioned primarily as an online support network so far, but we plan to organize local events and programs as well.

Harvard Arab Alumni Association
Attend the third annual Harvard Arab Weekend, November 12-15: “From Tradition to Innovation: Leading Change in the Middle East and North Africa”—a region known for rich traditions that is becoming a fertile environment for experimentation and innovation. Besides gathering many leaders active in those transformations, the weekend features a career fair, a civil-society forum, and an alumni awards dinner. This student-led initiative was organized by the HAAA, student groups at the College and the professional schools, the Middle East Initiative, and the Dubai Initiative.
