Inclusion, Belonging and Community Citizenship Initiative

This Initiative is for YOU – Columbia students  to develop skills and tools that are integral to community citizenship at Columbia.  The values of inclusion and belonging are central to supporting diversity in all aspects of campus life.

This Spring 2020 semester, we are launching the Inclusion, Belonging and Community Citizenship Initiative as a pilot in the schools of General Studies, Nursing and SIPA – and students from all schools are welcome to participate.


How to Participate

Students in the pilot schools will automatically be enrolled. 

If you're not a Nursing, General Studies or SIPA student but want to participate, please fill out this form to be added to the pilot. Can't wait to see you there!

Why the Inclusion and Belonging Initiative Matters

Experiencing a sense of belonging helps us all realize our potential at Columbia and beyond.  

We all have the ability – and responsibility – to support an ethic of care and mutual respect in our shared community, even – and especially   amidst our many differences.
