As Chair of the GSD Alumni Council, it is my absolute privilege to work with the 50 members of the Council, our exceptional alumni, and current students to develop activities of intellectual and social interest for our GSD community. Each year, we create opportunities for over 1,000 alumni in nearly 30 events in cities around the world. I’ve found that alumni are hungry for connection to the GSD, and the intellectual stimulation of design discourse and hope you will join for one event or several in the coming months.

The new Harvard Alumni Directory, the only verified network for Harvard University alumni, is a tool to connect you with the alumni community, as well as a resource for students to build connections with alumni. With an up-to-date profile, you can grow your career network, foster exchanges between students and alumni, and receive email communications from the GSD with news, invites, and other opportunities.

I look forward to seeing many of you and hearing about your work at the GSD’s robust calendar of upcoming events.

— Allyson Mendenhall AB ’90, MLA ’99, Alumni Council Chair
