The Harvard College in Asia Program (HCAP) was founded in October of 2003 at Harvard University. HCAP sponsors exchange conferences with the top universities in Asia. In February, students from these schools come to Harvard to attend the Harvard Conference; in late March, students from Harvard attend conferences at our partner schools across Asia. Since its founding, HCAP has united over 1000 students from Bangkok, Beijing, Cambridge, Dubai, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Jiangyin, Kuala Lumpur, Mumbai, New Delhi, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, and Tokyo.
St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Mumbai is the official partner college from India for the year 2012. This year’s HCAP – Mumbai Conference will be held in the second week of March 2012 at the College (11th – 18th March, 2012)
HCAP’s goal is to foster greater interest and understanding of Asia among Harvard students and of the United States among students in Asia. HCAP serves as a platform for student exploration and development by fostering intellectual, cultural, and social engagement. In the process, it connects the world’s current and future leaders and strengthens the international relationships of tomorrow.
