About the Joint Alumni Forum

A "Social Responsibility Committee" was recently established by the Harvard Club of Switzerland comprising representatives of the Alumni Clubs of Harvard, Oxford & Cambridge, Stanford, and Yale in Switzerland which are designing a forum for discussion, education and debate on various themes encompassing social responsibility. Kicking off the program is an after-work speakers series. The themes for the series could encompass equality issues (gender, minorities), human rights, refugees and environment /sustainability. The outreach for the speakers series is broader than exclusively the alumni of universities in the collaboration, but also like-minded representatives of institutions based in Switzerland and members of the public. There are also other collaborations in the planning stage including a Yale sponsored community service day. If you would like to participate in various projects emcompassing social responsibility (i.e. sustainability, etc.) you can contact
