President’s Welcome

    Jakob Haesler

    Welcome, bienvenue !

    Welcome to the Harvard Club of France, Europe’s second largest country with over 2,000 alumni. We represent and welcome alumni from all of Harvard: the College and the 12 graduate and professional schools.

    This Club is yours and we want you to feel part of the global Harvard community whether you are a long-time resident, a travelling alum, a temporary visitor, a newcomer or a recent graduate.

    Our active memberships start with the class of 1946, a remarkable timespan that reflects our ambition to build bridges across generations.

    The HCF is a not-for profit association (« Loi 1901 ») governed by an Executive Committee whose composition reflects the diversity of our community.

    Harvard is a lifelong journey and we want alumni to continue this extraordinary experience when connecting with the Club. To that end, our program is based on four key values that underpin the Harvard spirit: engaging, connecting, inspiring and celebrating. Take a look at our past newsletters to discover the types of activities we organize (new ideas are always welcome).

    If you wish to join the Club, sign-up now. Membership provides a series of benefits, including free admission to our Annual Reception Party in June.

    We want to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to contact us to find out how you can get involved or stay in touch with fellow Harvard alumni while in France.
