This even, Stuart Gordon will tell us about the Harvard UK Outreach program. Stuart sit on the Board of Directors of the Harvard Club of the UK, and his role is to co-ordinate Harvard's outreach efforts across the country. The outreach team visits over 30 state schools per year to give talks to students, parents and teachers about the application process to US colleges. Their purpose is to encourage talented students from under-represented groups to apply to Harvard and other top American universities, thereby increasing the diversity of Harvard's applicant pool. Students who wish to apply to US colleges are supported remotely via a free monthly newsletter, which provides information about what they need to do at each stage of the application cycle.
The objective of this evening is to discuss, if we would want to start a similar program at the Harvard Club of Berlin.
If we decide to start this, we will for sure start small butAny members which would want to volunteer in such a program would be more than welcome.
