The Harvard Club of France (HCF) is a non-profit organization (Association Loi 1901) that serves the interests of Harvard and the more than 2500 members of the alumni community in France.
Over the last thirty years, the Harvard Club of France has become one of the most dynamic Harvard clubs in Europe, combining a commitment to the Harvard spirit of tradition, innovation and forward thinking.
Engage | Inspire | Connect | Celebrate.
These four verbs summarize our goals to make the HCF an open, vibrant and welcoming space for all.
Through our Distinguished Speakers Series, we seek to foster a stimulating environment where alumni exchange ideas, engage with leading thinkers and explore new horizons.
Have a look at our past speakers to see the very broad range of interests we cover.
We regularly plan cultural events allowing HCF members to discover new forms of arts, meet outstanding artists and explore unique venues.
This year, for instance, we met artist Xavier VEILHAN, had a private visit of La Philharmonie, discovered new forms of arts at the Palais de Tokyo and were invited to a private viewing of Christies' prestigious painting collection.
Throughout the year we organize networking events so that Harvard alumni can meet and share experience across professional boundaries.
This typically consists of:
Career Breakfast Talk
Alumni Networking Lunches (usually every 2 months)
Harvard Global Networking Night (in January & June)
Monthly IVY+ Happy Hour (the first Thursday of each month)
We want the Club to be a place where members and newcomers have fun and make the most of France’s riches.
