Welcome to the Harvard Students Spouses and Partners Association (HSSPA)! Founded by Anna P. Lowell in 1896 as the Society of Harvard Dames, our long-standing organization promotes social fellowship and intellectual enrichment for spouses, partners, and family members of all Harvard affiliates. HSSPA is proudly backed by the Anna P. Lowell fund, established in 1930 by Abbot Lawrence Lowell, a former President of Harvard, in memory of his late wife.
Throughout our rich history, HSSPA has grown and evolved, becoming a diverse and inclusive community that embraces individuals of every gender, race, age, nationality, and sexual orientation.
Join us and experience new friendships, a sense of belonging, and the warmth of our cherished legacy within the prestigious university setting.
