哈佛大学是美国本土历史最悠久的高等学府,其诞生于1636年,最早由马萨诸塞州殖民地立法机关创建,初名新市民学院,是为了纪念在成立初期给予学院慷慨支持的约翰·哈佛牧师。学校于1639年3月更名为哈佛学院。

1780年,哈佛学院正式改称哈佛大学。截止2014年,学校有本科生6700余人,硕士及博士研究生14500余人。

哈佛大学在2017US news世界大学排名中名列第一,美国大学排名第二位。

2017年1月,《泰晤士高等教育》公布2017年度全球CEO母校排名,哈佛大学排名第一。

哈佛雕像底座刻着三行字「约翰哈佛,建校者,1638年」。底座左侧并刻有哈佛校徽:用倒三角形排列三本打开的书,书上刻有七个拉丁字母「VERITAS」,意为「真理」。「有真理,就会有谎言,即使哈佛也不例外,」因为这个铜像有「三个谎言」之称,号称「三谎雕像」。

第一个谎言,哈佛大学创立于1636年,不是1638年。
第二个谎言,哈佛学院创办时,仅有一名教师、九名学生;英国剑桥大学硕士约翰哈佛,移居北美不久病逝,把260本图书和一半家产(700多英镑,约官方建校拨款的两倍)捐赠给刚创立两年的学院。为了感谢和纪念约翰哈佛,议会决定用「哈佛」为学院命名。
第三个谎言是,哈佛去世年仅31岁,后人连他长什么样也不知道,也没有留下任何图像数据,为了纪念哈佛,雕刻家请了一位学生做模特儿,完成这尊铜像。

怀德纳图书馆门前的大片草地是历来开学典礼和毕业典礼的举行地。2007年的毕业典礼演讲嘉宾比尔盖茨和2008年的演讲嘉宾JK罗琳都是在这片草地上与哈佛的毕业生共享人生的经历和启迪。

Memorial Church - 纪念教堂,举行祈祷和礼拜仪式的地方,教堂内四壁嵌有大理石,纪念在第一次和第二次世界大战中捐躯的哈佛人,在朝鲜战争和越南战争中阵亡的哈佛毕业生名字也留名其上。

Harvard University is a private, Ivy League research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, established in 1636, whose history, influence, and wealth have made it one of the world's most prestigious universities.

Established originally by the Massachusetts legislature and soon thereafter named for John Harvard (its first benefactor), Harvard is the United States' oldest institution of higher learning, and the Harvard Corporation (formally, the President and Fellows of Harvard College) is its first chartered corporation. Although never formally affiliated with any denomination, the early College primarily trained Congregationalist and Unitarian clergy. Its curriculum and student body were gradually secularized during the 18th century, and by the 19th century Harvard had emerged as the central cultural establishment among Boston elites. Following the American Civil War, President Charles W. Eliot's long tenure (1869–1909) transformed the college and affiliated professional schools into a modern research university; Harvard was a founding member of the Association of American Universities in 1900. James Bryant Conant led the university through the Great Depression and World War II and began to reform the curriculum and liberalize admissions after the war. The undergraduate college became coeducational after its 1977 merger with Radcliffe College.The University is organized into eleven separate academic units—ten faculties and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study—with campuses throughout the Boston metropolitan area: its 209-acre (85 ha) main campus is centered on Harvard Yard in Cambridge, approximately 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Boston; the business school and athletics facilities, including Harvard Stadium, are located across the Charles River in the Allston neighborhood of Boston and the medical, dental, and public health schools are in the Longwood Medical Area. Harvard's $37.6 billion financial endowment is the largest of any academic institution.Harvard is a large, highly residential research university. The nominal cost of attendance is high, but the University's large endowment allows it to offer generous financial aid packages.[20] It operates several arts, cultural, and scientific museums, alongside the Harvard Library, which is the world's largest academic and private library system, comprising 79 individual libraries with over 18 million volumes. Harvard's alumni include eight U.S. presidents, several foreign heads of state, 62 living billionaires, 335 Rhodes Scholars, and 242 Marshall Scholars. To date, some 150 Nobel laureates, 18 Fields Medalists and 13 Turing Award winners have been affiliated as students, faculty, or staff.
