Get Back 4.5 Post-Reunion News





Do you miss the stimulation of gathering with classmates now that our reunion is over?  There are lots of ways to Get Back and engage with classmates, as we move forward through our Next Chapters and on toward our 50th Reunion, June 2-6, 2027.  Why not start now?


1.  Sign up for next session of Addressing Climate Change: Learning From and Being Inspired By Our Classmates” scheduled for Thursday, May 30, 2024, from 8:00 to 9:30 PM EST.  James F. Lavin, Deborah Gans, and Felicia Marcus have each been doing inspiring and important work to help address climate change. They will share their experiences and lessons learned that can inform and inspire others. The session will include their presentations, breakout groups to talk with classmates, and a Q and A session with our panelists. We will also begin the conversation about creating a “class project” to enable our classmates to come together to make a lasting impact on climate change.

3.  A burning question as we move towards our next Reunion is how will our esteemed HR77 classmate, President Alan Garber, collaborate with Harvard's governing bodies and faculty to regain unity and trust among all stakeholders?  To that end, check your email (including spam) from and vote in this year's Harvard 2024 Elections. Please consider voting for fellow HR77 classmate, Scott Mead, for Overseer.  



HR77 Longitudinal Survey


You can watch the recorded video of the 1/25/23 presentation of the updated results from our 45th Reunion's Study.  We gathered by Zoom on January 25, 2023 to discuss updated study results. The session focused on three of the most provocative questions raised by data:

  1. How are our lives, priorities and values changing as we move ever deeper into this next chapter in our lives?
  2. How has the life experience of women in our class differed from that of men, and why?
  3. How are we coming to terms with the "ultimate" questions, such as our mortality, legacies, and spirituality?
