Multicultural Resources

  • The Harvard Foundation for Intercultural & Race Relations
    The Harvard Foundation was started in 1981 by the president and deans of the College with the aim to “improve relations among racial and ethnic groups within the University and to enhance the quality of our common life.” To fulfill this mission, the Foundation sponsors events and activities designed to promote interracial and intercultural awareness within the Harvard community, ranging from student-led discussions on issues regarding diversity to ceremonies that honor individuals within and beyond the Harvard community who have made contributions to multiculturalism. The Foundation’s mission has expanded to also promote tolerance, acceptance, and inclusion of identifying factors outside of race and culture,  including class, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and more.
