INTERACT

Columbia Global Centers | Office of Global Centers and Global Development

The International Network to Expand Regional and Collaborative Teaching (INTERACT) is a pioneering program at Columbia University that focuses on developing global studies in the undergraduate curriculum through a network of postdoctoral scholars focused on cross-regional, trans-regional and interdisciplinary teaching. Through innovative courses and active involvement in all dimensions of campus intellectual life, INTERACT scholars seek to improve global literacy among Columbia students and equip them to be leaders in a globalizing world.     

The fellows work in coordination with the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, the Committee on Global Thought, the Harriman Institute, and the Weatherhead East Asian Institute.  

This year, there are four interact fellows who actively interact with other postdocs at the university, including those at the Society of Fellows.
