Our mission is to support a new generation of leaders by fostering global dialogue and cultural exchange.
The Harvard College in Asia Program (HCAP) was founded in October of 2003 with the goal of fostering a mutual interest and understanding between students from Harvard and students from top universities across Asia. We have since expanded to having 8 partner universities and over 200 attendees each year.
WHAT DOES HCAP DO?
HCAP is a platform for student exploration and development, connecting the world's future leaders and strengthening the international relationships of tomorrow.
Each year, we host exchange conferences with our partner schools. In January, students from partner schools come to Harvard to attend a week-long conference. In mid-March, students from Harvard attend conferences at our partner schools across Asia.
WHAT IS THE THEME?
Our conferences revolve around an annual theme—which, for HCAP 2023 is Starting Small, Thinking Big: Change Starting from Our Local Community.
Together, we explore how different cultural backgrounds and identities interpret this theme, by inviting guest speakers, hosting forums, and attending workshops.
