Harvard Extension Student Clubs
HES Clubs are clubs that are formally recognized by the HESA Board of Directors. They operate independently of HESA, but are sanctioned by and subject to oversight by the HESA Board of Directors. They shall appoint a representative to act as liaison to HESA as well as have at least one delegate in attendance of the General Assembly. There is a HES Clubs – In – Training program to seek approval through a pilot period. Official HES Clubs are eligible to receive funding from HESA’s Administration. In order to prevent conflict of interests, Voting Members of the HESA’s Executive Board are prohibited by the By-Laws from leadership positions within recognized clubs.
NOTE: New starting in the 2018-19 academic year, there are going to be changes to the requirements of being a sanctioned HES Club. This may cause some of the clubs listed here to lose their status as officially recognized clubs.
1. Each club must be connected to a specific degree program at Harvard Extension School.
2. The club’s President, Vice-President, and Director of Events must be degree candidates in that program.
3. The club must have an advisor who teaches in that program.
If you have any questions about HES Clubs or the process of forming a club, please contact the Director of Club Affairs.
