The Harvard College Association for US-China Relations (HAUSCR) is a student-run organization committed to bridging the gap between the United States and China through a number of unique programs. HAUSCR’s flagship program, the annual HAUSCR Summit for Young Leaders in China (HSYLC) is a week of exploration and development for Chinese high-school students conducted by Harvard undergraduates, faculty, and prominent leaders from both nations. At home, HAUSCR educates the Harvard community on the issues that confront the US and China with a unique mix of political, artistic, career-oriented, and cultural activities such as the China Symposium.
The Harvard College Association for US-China Relations (HAUSCR) promotes the exchange of ideas and opportunities between Harvard College students and students from all across China. Its goal is to foster the qualities of Leadership, Scholarship, Citizenship, and Entrepreneurship in the students of both countries through a synergistic combination of education, advocacy, and cultural dialogue.
HAUSCR is an official organization of Harvard College and is a registered 501(c)3 federal nonprofit organization. Its flagship program, the Harvard AUSCR Summit for Young Leaders in China (HSYLC), launched in the summer of 2006. HSYLC 2006, sponsored by the Goldman Sachs Foundation and American Airlines, recruited 37 Harvard undergraduates to create and teach individualized curricula at a sister school in Shanghai. The program received extensive media attention across China, bringing together approximately 300 high school students from an applicant pool of thousands to participate in this one-of-a-kind program.
Since 2006, HAUSCR has expanded its summer program each year to include a creative entrepreneurship program, Action for Tomorrow Venture (ATVenture), and continues to attract influential speakers from around the world. In addition, in 2008, HAUSCR successfully launched its first large-scale exchange program in the United States, bringing keynote speakers, including Jet Li, to Harvard’s campus. Recently, HAUSCR has successfully expanded its programs in the United States, and it looks forward to holding the eighth annual HSYLC in both Beijing and Shanghai this summer.
