Our Commitment

Harvard's commitment to diversity in all forms is rooted in our fundamental belief that engaging with unfamiliar ideas, perspectives, cultures, and people creates the conditions for dramatic and meaningful growth.

We must continue to find ways to support each other and work to build a community of care and solidarity towards changing the course for our future.

Recruitment Programs

For high school students interested in applying to Harvard, we have several programs to help you learn about our diverse campus community.
