About Us

We provide a platform, through social events as well as research- and policy-oriented panels, on which PhD students can interact with each other and with broader members of the Harris community outside of the classroom.


  • In light of the diverse PhD student body, we plan international-themed social hours where PhD students share cuisines emblematic of their cultures,
  • Facilitate panels that enable PhD students and Harris faculty to engage with the Harris community on cutting-edge and policy-relevant research issues,
  • Plan additional social events that bring students together in a relaxed atmosphere.
