Student Engagement

The Student Engagement Team in the Dean of Students Office supports engagement outside the classroom. We offer support for student leaders in the creation of vibrant and inclusive activities that build community at Harvard College.  From student-led initiatives in the numerous student organizations on campus to various campus-wide events and traditions, we are here to enhance the student experience.


Engagement can take the shape of co-curricular or extra-curricular pursuits through which students have opportunities to develop new ideas, discover hidden talents, cultivate interpersonal skills, and work to accomplish collectively what could not be done individually.
