New Harvard Overseers and HAA Directors

The names of the new members of the Board of Overseers and elected directors of the HAA were announced during the HAA’s annual meeting on the afternoon of Commencement Day.

Five of the new Overseers were elected for the standard six-year terms. Janet Echelman will complete the remaining four years of the term of Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar ’93, who was elected in February to the Harvard Corporation. (His service begins on July 1). Ryan Wise will complete the remaining year of the term of James Hildreth ’79, who resigned from the board in view of other personal obligations.

This year marked the debut of online-voting for both elections. Harvard degree-holders cast 36,735 ballots in the Overseers election, a roughly 37 percent increase over 2018’s turnout.
