A forum for productive dialogue on the world’s most pressing issues


A catalyst for global mutual understanding amongst conference delegates


A spark for lifelong friends that overcome geographical limitations


"HCAP narrows the social, political, and ideological gaps between the West and the East. Even though the conference itself was held only for two weeks, its memories will last forever in everyone’s minds."

"Harvard College in Asia Program is a conference unlike any other. These two weeks each year have singlehandedly allowed me to grow more as a person than any other experience in my undergraduate career. I've crossed paths with people I would've never encountered in my life, became inspired to pursue global health, and made memories that will last a lifetime."
