About Us

Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul serves as a hub for Columbia programs and initiatives relevant to Turkey and the region. The Center aims to contribute to the academic and research environment of Turkey across a variety of fields, while also allowing members of the Columbia community to increase their knowledge and explore academic opportunities within Turkey. The Center works in collaboration with local universities, non-governmental organizations and public institutions 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 also act towards building a lively and engaged community of local and international alumni, students and faculty.

Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul was launched in November 2011 and became fully operational in January 2012. The Center is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of Columbia University senior administrators, and receives guidance from a University-wide Faculty Steering Committee and the Office of Columbia Global Centers. An Advisory Board composed of prominent academics, public figures and business leaders also provides oversight, ongoing leadership and counsel regarding the Center’s activities.
