Alumni Events and Programs

Alumni Events

The GSAS Alumni Association works with the GSAS Office of Alumni Relations to create events to nurture the relationship between GSAS and its alumni and create opportunities for alumni and students to connect. Past events have included panels, networking sessions, mixers, and more, with special guests including notable alumni and GSAS faculty. New alumni events are shared in this space, via email, and as part of the GSAS Alumni Newsletter. To subscribe to the newsletter, or for information about attending an event, participating in a panel, and more, write to gsas-alumni [at] columbia.edu.

Columbia University makes every effort to accommodate individuals with disabilities. If you require disability accommodations to attend an event at Columbia University, please contact the Office of Disability Services at (212) 854-2388 at least ten days in advance of the event.
