Global education is a priority for Columbia University and its network of Global Centers. Since its foundation, the Santiago Center has developed and facilitated various academic and professional training programs for Columbia students in collaboration with local partners.
These education programs cover a variety of subjects and benefit mostly graduate and PhD Columbia students. Among them, are the academic exchanges between students of astrophysics of Columbia University and Universidad Católica, and between graduate students of the Aging Center at Mailman School of Public Health and Universidad Diego Portales.
"The Route of Freedom and Hope" was the name chosen by the children from primary school Escuela Republica de Israel for the one-day art intervention they organized at Plaza Yungay, one of Santiago's most emblematic public spaces, to remember and honor the victims of the Holocaust. They had been learning and reflecting on diversity and human rights in their History, Language, Religion and Art classes throughout the semester in the framework of an innovative educational project implemented by this public school’s principal and teachers.
In mid-November, the Columbia alumni community in Santiago met for the second time this year for a social gathering at the rooftop of Chile’s second tallest building, the Titanium La Portada skyscraper.
