On March 10, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harvard University decided to move its undergraduate and graduate courses online. All courses, from 10-person seminars to 1000-person lectures, became offered in a virtual format in order to support over 2,000 professors and 20,000 students who could no longer attend in-person classes. In Harvard’s spirit of adapting to today’s ever-changing circumstances, the Harvard College AUSCR Summit for Young Leaders in China (HSYLC), a renowned international exchange event organized by Harvard College Association for US-China Relations, is resolved to continue providing a transformative, liberal arts experience that can cross borders and space. As such, HSYLC 2020 will be held online.
In the past two weeks, HSYLC’s advisory board members and international partners have been dedicating themselves to an unprecedented rethinking of HSYLC: for fifteen years, HSYLC has created an unforgettable experience for tens of thousands of outstanding Chinese high school students, so during this increasingly digital age, how can it continue to evolve and improve to prepare Chinese students for the challenges of the present and future? With more details to be revealed in the near future, we would first like to share with you some vision behind the exciting new online HSYLC:
Beyond Time: A “24/7” HSYLC
How to Learn
During the exciting “shopping week” at the beginning of every semester at Harvard, undergraduate students can sample as many courses as they like and thus decide on the most appropriate schedule for their semesters before officially enrolling. A “24/7” HSYLC aims to use online resources to provide you with a similar experience.
While still experiencing the celebrated small-size seminar discussions and office hours run by Harvard Seminar Leaders, you will also enjoy more autonomy deciding how many and which courses you can participate in or watch each day. At HSYLC 2020, you can choose from over 100 courses accessible online. Expose yourself to new subjects or set the record for most classes attended, all while making the most out of your core classes! The true learning should be free of boundaries, as you take the helm in the process.
Beyond Lands: A Global HSYLC
With Whom to Learn
Save yourself from all the traveling, as a borderless pool of talents will come to your front.
Though recent events have kept many talented, brilliant people isolated in their home countries, HSYLC 2020 will connect you to them from your own home.
In addition to Seminar Leaders from Harvard, who will be coming to HSYLC Online from locations all across the world to teach and learn with you, scholars from other great universities in the world, such as Ivy League schools, Oxford, Cambridge, as well as top domestic universities will also be invited to teach and mentor you. We believe that with access to an even more diverse group of top minds, you will learn more by hearing from various perspectives from all over the world.
Beyond Ages: A Transformative HSYLC
What to Learn
Age is a number, but your potential cannot be measured by numbers. At HSYLC, you can break through the boundaries of age and join instructors and mentors from the world’s top universities, gaining not only insights into cutting-edge scientific and technological questions, but also command of literary and artistic analysis as well as global understanding and communications. If you wish to challenge yourself further, you can also join an in-depth research program led by a Harvard Seminar Leader on a topic of your interest.
In the meantime, HSYLC 2020 intends to prepare you for your future: What do you want to do beyond academics? How should you live a life to become the best you can be? In online HSYLC masterclasses, you will follow leading figures of various industries to understand their life stories and experiences, and imagine your own life in 10 or 20 years. Take this image with you as you continue to explore wide possibilities of careers you might not even have known before HSYLC.
No matter how HSYLC evolves, we have always and always will strongly believe that financial concerns should not be obstacles to your pursuit of dreams through education. Each year, thanks to the need-blind financial support system of HSYLC, a large number of students have attended HSYLC worry-free. If trying times of 2020 have imposed considerable financial difficulty on your family, we encourage you to apply for HSYLC nevertheless and apply for financial aid. At the same time, with our close collaboration with an increasing number of charities and socially responsible corporations and enterprises, HSYLC online will make every endeavor to bring the best educational resources of the world more equally to you.
As the saying goes, if you want to radically improve your way of thinking, your motivation and success both in school and out, the first step is to radically change your environment; to surround yourself with other intelligent students and talented mentors who can help drive you to excel even more than you have before.
The time has come. This year, on its 15th birthday, HSYLC is growing its new branches to lift more dreams up into the sky. We encourage you to continue applying to HSYLC 2020: you, born in the era of the Internet, will join us in an unprecedented global experiment of education and learning. No matter what you hope to take away from HSYLC, together with us, you will see the history, live the history, and make the history.
The only constant in the world is change. Live in the moment, seize the day and live it to the fullest!
