The HCPSA is a welcoming, fun-loving, outgoing organization. We love each other’s company and would love to get to know you too. As friends, we know when to take things seriously and when to let go for a bit. Whether we’re casually talking at UNO’s or casually talking – with laptops – in Lowell D-Hall, we work in an environment of sharing ideas and the occasional laugh, learning from each other while coming up with new ways to bring Pakistan and Harvard closer.
And with that, we’d like to end with a classic Pakistani welcome:
History of HCPSA
The floods of 2010 that devastated Pakistan resulted in many of the undergrads to come together to campaign and fundraise for Pakistani flood victims. During this period, the need to have a Pakistani student group was more important than ever.
The Harvard College Pakistan Student Association, HCPSA, has been founded with the aim of creating a vibrant and productive community, leveraging our strength across all Harvard schools. We hope to create opportunities for students across Harvard with an affiliation with Pakistan to connect on activities and topics of interest, to stimulate thought-leadership and active engagement on topics related to Pakistan with domestic and global implications, realizing the strength of the entire Harvard community.
Our mission is to promote interest in and awareness of Pakistan's culture and current affairs within the Harvard undergraduate community. Through events that bring Pakistan to the fore and stimulate further dialogue, HCPSA aims to cater to a diverse community interested in developing an understanding of Pakistan, it’s culture, affairs and issues.
