At work in the world
Harvard experts, researchers, and leaders all around the globe make contributions—from public health to conflict resolution—that transcend borders, forge connections, and strengthen communities.
Global scholarship and languages
Each of Harvard’s Schools integrates a global perspective into its curriculum and research agenda. We have more than 50 international research centers and programs on campus, spanning many fields and regions. You’ll also find more than 80 languages taught here, including Uyghur, Gullah, and Lingala.
Global reach and impact
Harvard has more than 20 locations abroad, along with numerous other initiatives, clinics, and international partnerships. Our work abroad ranges from advancing human rights through a law clinic in Myanmar to partnering with the University of Rwanda, the country’s first-ever dental school, to advance local dental education.
