Please join us and four-time U.S. Olympic Ice Hockey medalist Julie Chu AB ’07 for a special set of events that will turn a spotlight on the significant contributions to Harvard sports history and to the larger sports industry played by Harvard’s Asian students and alumni and on the importance of athletics in the Harvard experience of Asian students.
With the notable recent exceptions of Chu and NBA stand-out Jeremy Lin AB ’09, athletics have not been readily associated with Harvard’s Asian and Asian-American students and alumni. On Saturday afternoon, October 25th, the Summit will turn that idea on its head. We are featuring two special, back-to-back events:
o Saturday, October 25 | 4:45 p.m. – 6:00pm – The Future of the Sports Industry, featuring alumni at the forefront of amateur and professional sports
o Saturday, October 25 | 6:00pm – 8:00pm – Tribute to Asian Athletes—Past & Present - the main program of our Summit Dinner Reception
At the reception, we will present our Distinguished Alum Athlete Award to Julie Chu plus special HAAAA Student-Athlete Watch List Awards. There will also be an athlete slideshow, a few brief keynotes from other special guests, and great food and drink.
We invite all alumni and current student athletes to join us—in team attire and your “Major H” letter sweaters, if possible!
SPECIAL REGISTRATION is required for ALL ATHLETES attending the reception (current student & alumni athletes):
