Columbia Global Centers | Nairobi (CGC | Nairobi) is part of nine global Centers located in Amman, Beijing, Istanbul, Mumbai, Nairobi, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, and Tunis. As envisioned by Columbia University's President Lee C. Bollinger, the Global Centers were founded to connect the local with the global, create opportunities for shared learning and deepen the nature of global dialogue. As an essential hub in the global Centers' network and the only one based in sub-Saharan Africa, CGC | Nairobi serves as a regional hub for research and collaboration as part of Columbia University's strategy to achieve a global presence and link the continent to Columbia's scientific rigor, technological innovation, and academic leadership. Learn more about our history.
