Public Engagement

The Mumbai Center organizes several lectures, panels, workshops, and creative programs to make academic knowledge more accessible to a diverse audience. Through forums and training workshops, we share research evidence and global best practices with government and civil society organizations to foster informed decision-making. Functioning as a network, we link faculty and experts at Columbia University and other Columbia Global Centers with regional scholars, government, alumni, civil and private sector organizations, students, and innovators.

Public programs: The Center is committed to knowledge and promoting scholarly discourse on a wide range of issues to foster community dialogue. It hosts public lectures, seminars, and panel discussions on various topics including sustainable water management, climate resilience, healthcare during the pandemic, and the effects of environmental pollution on health. 

Speaker series: Our "Writing Indian Stories" series is an ongoing initiative that features literary works by members of the Columbia community, particularly alumni. These works engage with the complex realities of society and offer distinct pathways for reimagining our world. The series has attracted renowned figures such as Dr. Isabel Alonso, Sudeep Sen, Naheed Phiroze Patel, and Diksha Basu over the years.
