Legacies & Landscapes
As diplomatic and economic ties between the United States and Cuba are reformed over the next few years, the landscape of Cuba will dramatically change, making it more important than ever to experience Cuba as it is today. The Harvard Alumni Association is operating this educational program under a general license authorized by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). This program differs from more traditional trips in that every hour must be accounted for. Each day has been structured to provide meaningful interactions with Cuban people or educational or cultural programming. Please note that Harvard University intends to fully comply with all requirements of the general license. Travelers must participate in all group activities.
Please note that we fully expect this program to change so that we can accommodate the changing schedules of the people meeting with the group. The below program includes examples of speakers and visits but there may be other guests and visits added as we develop the program. We will have an updated itinerary in early 2017.
