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.

Columbia Global Centers | Amman

Columbia Global Centers | Amman is a hub for Columbia programs and initiatives relevant to Jordan and the region. The Center contributes to Jordan’s academic and research environment, while also allowing members of the Columbia community to increase their knowledge and explore academic opportunities within Jordan. The Center works in collaboration with local academia, government, civil society, and the private sector to design cross-cutting, innovative programs and partnerships with different Schools, Centers, and Institutes within Columbia. Ongoing events, lectures, and seminars hosted by the Center build a lively and engaged community of local and international alumni, students, and faculty.

Driving Our Purpose

Columbia Global Centers | Amman was established in March 2009 as one of the first in the network of Columbia Global Centers. With its headquarters in Amman, Jordan, the Center serves as a hub for programs and educational initiatives throughout the Middle East. These activities serve mutually beneficial ends: the Center offers Columbia students and faculty opportunities to expand scholarship, and its work contributes to knowledge exchange and skill development with academics, experts, and practitioners throughout the region.

From Research to Impact

Research and teaching by Columbia University faculty can directly address global challenges. Through the creation and sharing of knowledge, our faculty foster interdisciplinary collaborations that contribute to key issues around the world. Your support can help Columbia University permanently establish the resources needed to underwrite innovative global projects and research on relevant and timely topics ranging from forced migration to extremism to climate change. With the support of our partners and local audiences in Jordan, our Centers will be able to respond quickly and positively to support the creation of knowledge that impacts the University and the world.
