Board of Overseers and HAA Elected Director Candidates

The Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) nominating committee has announced the 2024 candidate slates for the Board of Overseers (one of the University’s two governing boards) and the HAA’s own elected directors. Balloting is open from April 1 through May 14, at 5 p.m. Degree holders other than officers of instruction and government may vote for Overseer candidates; all degree holders can vote on the HAA elected-director candidates. Other candidates who sought a position on this year’s ballot by petition failed to qualify (see harvardmag.com/overseers-petition-24). This magazine asked the HAA-nominated candidates to answer a series of questions about their views of the University and the roles they would play if elected to the Board of Overseers; read their responses at harvardmag.com/candidate-priorities-24.
