Harvard University Association of Alumni in Singapore

Veritas Singapura

H

Welcome

As the official club of Harvard alumni in Singapore, the objective of the Harvard University Association of Alumni in Singapore (HUAAS) is to advance the mutual welfare of Harvard University and its alumni in Singapore. Our motto is “Veritas Singapura” combining the ethos of our alma mater and referencing the national anthem of Singapore. The association’s activity will be focused on three areas: Programming, Outreach, and Structure.

  • Programming – maintaining an active event calendar for social and professional development activities
  • Outreach – growing the number of active members in the Club year on year to improve the quality of relationships in the Harvard community
  • Structure – maintaining a dispersed leadership model allowing for broad participation from various segments within the Harvard community and alumni from the college and different graduate schools and divisions of Harvard University.
