Today, Columbia provides a multidisciplinary platform for teaching, research and advocacy on the fundamental challenges facing a free press in a digital age.
This is a moment of new beginnings both for Columbia, as the University opens the first two buildings on its new Manhattanville campus, and for the more than 15,000 members of the Class of 2017 who graduate on May 17.

Alondra Nelson was an eight-year-old when the television adaptation of Alex Haley’s Roots aired in 1977 to an audience of 130 million people. “We knew it was very important,” she said. “My parents were fairly strict about bedtimes and television time, but allowed us to stay up until 11 pm for eight nights.”

Columbia University today announced that Lisa Carnoy (CC’89) and Jonathan Lavine (CC’88) have been elected to serve as the next co-chairs of the University Board of Trustees, beginning in September 2018.

After nine years of dedicated service to the board, including nearly five years as chair, Jonathan Schiller (CC’69, LAW’73) will pass the gavel to Carnoy and Lavine.
