Undergraduate Minority Recruitment Program


Find Rich Cultural Communities and Opportunities

While Harvard is renowned for its academic excellence, we strongly believe that one of our greatest strengths is our incredibly diverse campus community.

The Undergraduate Minority Recruitment Program (UMRP) focuses on providing information about our diverse campus community and the Harvard College application process to minority middle and high school students.


The UMRP is sponsored by the Admissions Office and is staffed by current undergraduates. Get in touch with our student coordinators to learn more about the application process and life as an undergraduate student. Ask us about extracurricular activities, cultural groups, research and academic opportunities, or anything else.
