Columbia University in the City of New York

Intellectual sparks fly constantly at Columbia, where courses, labs, studios, lectures and other school-based activities offer room for thought, learning and debate. Amidst the extraordinary number of events happening each day, there are some that focus particularly on significant, challenging issues that have broad community-based or societal impact. The Office of University highlights these events for the broader University community.  Through “Ideas and Action,” the Office also creates space for ongoing digital conversation and exchange about these issues of our day.
