Event description

Description

The Harvard University Muslim Alumni (HUMA) welcomes you to the 9th annual Reunion Dinner! All Harvard affiliates (alumni, students, faculty, etc) and family are invited. HUMA is always excited to see our community grow so children attend gratis.

Come reconnect with old friends and meet other Harvard Muslims! The annual dinner brings HUMA members from across the globe to a single venue, building a strong Harvard Muslim community to further HUMA's long-term mission: facilitating professional networking and mentoring, supporting the Muslim community on campus, helping students access Harvard, and improving Islamic scholarship at Harvard.

Our keynote speech this year will be given by Dr. Shireen Al-Adeimi, an assistant professor at Michigan State University. Professor Al-Adeimi is an assistant professor of elementary reading at Michigan State University’s College of Education. Her research focuses investigating the predictive relationships between dialogic classroom talk and student outcomes such as reading comprehension, persuasive writing, and academic language. She earned her doctorate degree from Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) in 2018. She also holds master’s degrees from HGSE (2016) and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (2012).

Since 2015, Al-Adeimi has been raising awareness about the conflict in her country of birth, Yemen, advocating for an end to U.S. involvement in the war, and fundraising for those impacted by the humanitarian crisis. Her writing on Yemen has appeared in In These Times, NBC, and elsewhere, and she has been interviewed by various media outlets including NPR’s Democracy Now!, PRI’s The World, and NBC’s Why Is This Happening.

To accompany Dr. Al-Adeimi's keynote on Yemen, HUMA is raising funds for MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières) to aid in the humanitarian crisis.

We will continue the weekend with a brunch for Muslim students and alumni on Sunday morning.

FAQ

Who is invited?

We are honored to welcome alumni, students, faculty members, research fellows, and staff of any of the Harvard schools (e.g. Harvard Business School), Harvard-affiliated hospitals (e.g. Mass General Hospital), and other Harvard-affiliated institutions (e.g. Rowland Institute).

Is there a networking session?

We know dinner is just not enough for connecting with old friends and getting to know new ones. We plan for this weekend to be a chance to meaningfully connect with other HUMA members. A mixer will take place before the dinner, starting at 5:30pm. Please be sure your information is entered correctly when reserving your ticket as we will use that to make badges

Will there be awesome food?

The HUMA board takes food seriously, and we strive to pick the best caterers we can from the Boston area every year.

Can I bring my family? Will there be babysitting?

Absolutely! While we do not offer babysitting services, the dinner, as with all HUMA events, is very kid friendly. Entry is free for children 12 and under.

How do I get there?

From Harvard Yard, the Harvard School of Public Health is just a 30 minute ride on the M2 or Green Line or a 13 minute drive.
