We invite you to get involved with the creative and intellectual life of the Radcliffe Institute and support its people, programs, and collections.

In addition to making a gift, we encourage you to join us at public events in Cambridge, watch videos online, and subscribe to stay informed of Institute events and happenings. We also host regional events to engage alumnae/i, supporters, fellows, and friends with our work in Cambridge.

“A great university needs a place where thinkers from across its campus and around the globe come together to take risks, explore new ideas, and connect theory and practice. At Harvard, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study is that place and is contributing to the future of Harvard’s excellence and leadership.”

Sidney R. Knafel ’52, MBA ‘54

“Conceived as a bold interdisciplinary, intergenerational, and international experiment, the Radcliffe Institute is now one of the world’s leading institutes for advanced study. A vast range of path-breaking intellectual work happens in and across the sciences, the humanities, the social sciences, and the arts. The Institute is a credit to Radcliffe’s history and Harvard’s future.”
