Alumni Network

The GSAS alumni community is a worldwide network of more than 40,000 individuals, united across departments and degrees by their shared Columbia graduate experience. Columbia's Graduate School is one of the oldest in the country, and your degree makes you an integral part of this institution.

GSAS alumni have a number of ways to stay connected with one another and with current students. Please write to Iralba Castillo, associate director of alumni relations, at ic2250 [at] columbia.edu with any questions.
