Columbia Global Centers: Connecting People, Connecting the World

Columbia University views the challenges and opportunities presented by globalization to require major changes in how it organizes itself for the 21st century. Already deeply and extensively international, the University views a network of Global Centers as the next step in its long history as an international research university. Attuned to the priorities and unique circumstances of its host region, each center leverages the University’s diverse intellectual capacities from across the undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools, and pursues a set of university-wide core activities that evolves over time based on the active engagement of faculty and students.
