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 programs cover a variety of subjects and benefit mostly Columbia graduate and PhD students, although since 2017 several undergraduates have undertaken fieldwork in Chile through study abroad programs. These activities include academic exchanges between astrophysics students at Columbia University and Universidad Católica and between graduate students of the Aging Center of the Mailman School of Public Health and Universidad Mayor.

In another example of collaboration, the spring 2018 semester marked the first year of the literary translation workshop Word for Word, bringing together graduate students at Columbia University’s School of the Arts and at Universidad Diego Portales (UDP) in Chile.
