Harvard Political Review

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The Harvard Political Review (HPR) is a quarterly, nonpartisan political journal and dynamic online platform produced entirely by undergraduates. In recent years, content from the HPR has been featured in the New York Times, BloombergSlate, and The Huffington Post.

The HPR was founded in 1969 by a group of Harvard College undergraduates who envisioned a publication that allowed students to research, write, and edit political commentary in a thoughtful, non-partisan forum. Since the magazine's founding, the HPR staff has interviewed political luminaries and heads of state such as Presidents Clinton, Reagan, Ford, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, and Mikhail Gorbachev.

Over the past generation, the HPR has incubated some of the best political minds in America. Among the magazine’s alumni are Al Gore, Jr. (former Vice President and Nobel Laureate), E.J. Dionne, Jr. (Washington Post columnist), Jonathan Alter (former Newsweek Senior Editor and Bloomberg View columnist), and Jeffrey Sachs (Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University).
