Columbia's Global Reach

The recent establishment of Columbia Global is a demonstration of the University's commitment to learning from and contributing to the world. It is an acknowledgment of the importance of global engagement and of a responsibility to take the products of scholarship to advance the thinking and doing around the world.

From its newly established Climate School to its longstanding, substantial academic leadership in the arts, classics, and business, Columbia University offers the academic excellence, deep expertise, and convening power to capitalize on our unique strengths and capabilities, and thus advance these thematic areas in the most impactful manner.

The contributions of the Columbia Global Centers to the University and the global community are as numerous as they are diverse. For almost a decade, the Global Centers have engaged thousands of Columbia faculty and students through collaborative programming with all of Columbia’s schools and academic programs.

Columbia University is dedicated to teaching and learning that reach deeply and widely into and around the world, creating opportunities for meaningful scholarship and impact. Global Columbia signifies a commitment to understanding challenges, as well as to creating opportunities to address them. Local partnerships are an integral component of this effort.
