On immigration policies and community support

June 26, 2018 - In light of today’s Supreme Court ruling related to a ban on immigration that primarily affects individuals from Muslim-majority countries, and recent disturbing news of fraught situations involving immigration enforcement at U.S. borders, we reiterate Columbia’s fundamental commitment to welcoming students, faculty and staff from around the world.

Take the Columbia Student Well-Being Survey!

March 26, 2018 - Today begins the Columbia Student Well-Being Survey, an important way for you to contribute to what we know about campus life, mental health and gender-based misconduct.
