Global Columbia Collaboratory

We’re at a moment when the need for global cooperation to address the problems facing humanity has never been greater. This program offers students the opportunity to learn about these complex challenges, collaborate with experts and with their peers, and propose meaningful solutions that can translate into action.

Columbia University President Lee C. Bollinger

Now more than ever, in today’s globally connected world, we need leaders who can deal with complexity, diversity, and change to address our many global challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Columbia Global Centers invite you to engage with the broader Columbia network through seminars we are offering to students and making available to the public as part of the Global Columbia Collaboratory.

The Collaboratory is a program designed to help students connect and cooperate across a global network, empowering them to make a difference in the world as global citizens. The three components of the Collaboratory are the global seminars, reflection (after each seminar), and collaboration/ideation. For more information on the Collaboratory visit the Center for Undergraduate Global Engagement.
