About us

The Harvard India Student Group (HISG) was established in 2011 as one of the first university-wide student groups (USG) under Harvard University. In its fourth year of existence, HISG continues to meet its mandate of providing a platform across 13 Harvard schools for communication and collaboration amongst students, faculty and alumni who share an interest in topics related to India.

HISG has three main aims: 

1. To provide a platform for greater communication and engagement among Harvard students with an interest in India on the academic, social and cultural planes. 

2. To create greater student-faculty engagement on issues related to India. 

3. To provide opportunities for greater interaction and collaboration between current Harvard students and HISG alumni.
