Aligned with the mission of Harvardwood, the purpose of the Chicago Chapter of Harvardwood is to bring together Harvard alumni and affiliates working in arts, entertainment, and media to build a community dedicated to the cultural sector.

Harvardwood Chicago’s goal is to engage our membership through programming that reflects the vibrancy of its members, including: meet-and-greet events, cultural outings, and working groups. Additionally, opportunities reflect the collaborative relationships with local Harvard University alumni/affiliated groups, civic, and business organizations established for promoting arts, entertainment, and media.

We believe Chicago is poised as a center of creativity and we believe the Chicago Chapter of Harvardwood will be a conduit to the professional resources and opportunities for its members.
