Harvard Club of Rhode Island Leadership

Welcome to the Harvard Club of Rhode Island!

Our club was founded in 1882 and is one of the oldest Harvard Clubs in the world.  We are dedicated to connecting undergraduate and graduate school alumni with each other, other Ivy League alumni and with the Rhode Island community through “Harvard experiences”, which include the following:

•    Sports-based gatherings, especially games @ Brown and The Game
•    Social events, including trips to Cambridge
•    Annual Dinner, featuring a Harvard professor as the guest speaker
•    Interviewing of area high school applicants to Harvard College
•    Celebrations for local students admitted to Harvard

•    HAA Global Networking Night and Young Alumni Welcome to Your City events

We invite you to join us and to make the HCRI distinctly yours! We are also looking for new ideas and energy for our leadership team. Please feel free to email hcri@post.harvard.edu with any questions about membership, events or suggestions for the Club. For the latest news and to see our photo library follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
