Harvard College Social Organization Recognition Process

Harvard College seeks to build a community where every student can thrive, and it does so on the foundation of a set of shared values including belonging, inclusion, and non-discrimination. The College’s February 2017 Final Report of the Implementation Committee for the policy on membership in Unrecognized Single Gender Social Organizations and the September 2017 Final Report of the Faculty Committee on Unrecognized Single-Gender Social Organizations provided recommendations for the definitions, characteristics and expectations of inclusive social organizations who are interested in positively contributing to the social life of the campus community. The recognition process submitted below draws upon these recommendations. In partnership with faculty, staff, and students, the College has adopted this process for recognizing social organizations that are seeking formal recognition from the College.
