Columbia Global Centers | Beijing was established in March 2009 as one of the first in the network of Columbia Global Centers. As Columbia’s focal point in and open gate to China, the Beijing Center has a unique position linking China to the region, the hemisphere, and the rest of the global centers around the world; providing Columbia faculty and students with opportunities to expand their research and scholarship, but also as a conduit for knowledge exchange and skill development with local and regional academics, experts and practitioners.

In 2017, the Beijing Center continues to engage the four areas of focus, including (1) Art, Culture, & History, (2) Urban Planning & Public Health, (3) Environment & Sustainability, and (4) Business, Innovation, & Entrepreneurship.  Moreover, we have expanded with an additional theme: Engineering & Applied Science, aiming to showcase wholly the core and essence of Columbia’s superb academic capabilities to the current regional context and serve as a bridge to promote the bilateral engagement between Columbia faculty, students, alumni and their Chinese counterparts. From July 2016 to July 2017, the Center organized and hosted 71 events, engaging 7 deans, 81 faculty, 264 students, 686 alumni, and 95 local partners.
