During the 2017-2018 academic year, we hired six students to help us map all of the student organizations and resources across all of Harvard that are related to teaching and learning. We chose not to be overly discriminatory in our definition of “teaching and learning” because our goal for this directory is to help students find each other and build a cross-school student network. Some of these organizations are supported by faculty and/or staff and some are entirely student-run. We did our best to collect this information with rigor; however, we know that this will always be a work in progress as student organizations evolve and change in parallel with our dynamic student body. We encourage you to browse, search, and reach out if you know of additional student groups or notice revisions; we appreciate your help making sure that this resource is relevant and useful.
