Columbia Global Centers | Amman was established in March 2009 as a hub for programs and educational initiatives throughout the Middle East. The Amman Center is part of an expanding network of Columbia Global Centers, now in nine cities around the world. The Global Centers are intellectual and physical infrastructures for Columbia University that facilitate knowledge exchange and skill development and provide faculty and students with opportunities to expand their research and scholarship. The Centers serve as conduits for local, regional, and global knowledge, expertise, and networks.

The Columbia Global Centers, as envisioned by President Lee C. Bollinger, were founded with the objective of connecting the local with the global, to create opportunities for shared learning and to deepen the nature of global dialogue. Learn more about our history
