Harvard Public Service on the Map


Exciting opportunity for Harvard students and alumni to connect through Public Service around the globe: with the launch of Harvard Public Service on the Map! In a year where the Harvard Graduate Council has been collaborating with President Faust, individual graduate schools, the Harvard Alumni Association, and partners throughout the University to promote and support public service initiatives at Harvard, HGC is excited by the potential of this social connectivity site to enable Harvard alumni and students to share resources, expertise, career advice, and opportunities related to their public service involvement.

Please visit http://onthemap.harvard.edu/ and register on the beta site. The initial registration only takes a few seconds and ensures you will be among the first notified when the site goes live in April. The site will only be as strong as the information entered into it by users.

Quick HGC Update


Tonight’s HGC meeting started with a reintroduction of HGC representatives. There was a recap of HGC’s involvement in Public Service Week and the university-wide Leadership Summit organized by HGC which took place last week. We are considering how to use the momentum generated at the Summit for future events to bring together student leaders from across Harvard University’s graduate schools. This Thursday (10/29), there will be a “Beer School” beginning at 5:30pm at Queenshead. Sam Adams will provide 4-6 tastings with snacks for $10 per person. Tickets can be purchased in advance or the day of the event at Queenshead. HGC will host a “First Thursday” happy hour at Lir in Boston on November 5th. Drink tickets will be available. The next speed dating event will be on November 12th. Registration opens next Tuesday online at harvardspeeddating.com.
