OUR STORY

During its inaugural year, the Harvard Diversity Project became a national media sensation after achieving a historic win at the Harvard summer debate residency.

In the months leading up to the summer, the first cohort of students sacrificed their Saturdays to study in Atlanta under the tutelage of Brandon Fleming, Harvard University’s Assistant Debate Coach. Fleming, an-at risk youth turned award-winning educator, leveraged his Harvard debate faculty position to create the Atlanta-based pipeline for the intent purpose of increasing minority representation at the Harvard residency.

The program gained the financial backing of major corporations such as Chick-fil-A Foundation, The Coca-Cola Company, Kaiser Permanente, UPS, Publix Super Markets, and the Atlanta Hawks, and Turner Broadcasting, who fund scholarships for students in the pipeline to study at Harvard each summer.

SCHOLARHIP:
An incubator for academic excellence
Our goal is to train citizens and leaders of the world, which requires global consciousness. Learn More
LEADERSHIP:
A launchpad for young leaders
The fact that young people do not have a vote in elections does not mean they shouldn’t have a voice. Learn More
CULTURE:
A hub for cultural pride
We seek to cultivate cultural ambassadors that reform the meaning of scholarship into one that is appealing and accessible to black youth. Learn More
