They are the same! As a graduate of HDS, you are automatically a member of the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA). This means that in addition to having access to HDS-specific programming and events, you can also access all the resources and programming that the HAA has to offer.
Alumni have complimentary access to Andover-Harvard Theological Library and to ATLASerials®, an online collection of more than 70 major religion and theology journals. To gain access to the library and the ATLASerials® database, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes your full name and degree year. After a member of the staff has verified that you are a graduate of the School, you will be sent login information to access the database.
There are many ways to make a contribution to HDS. Detailed instructions on how to give by credit card, check, securities, and more can be found on the Harvard University giving site. If you are looking to make a gift online now, you can do so by using our online giving form.
