At SIPA, which focuses on global politics and policy, Clinton will work closely with Dean Keren Yarhi-Milo and other senior faculty and administrators on a variety of major initiatives and engage with students in the classroom starting in the 2023-2024 academic year.
“She is a remarkable leader who has been on the frontlines of virtually every critical challenge facing our world today—from the global fight to save democracy, her advocacy for women’s rights, and her staunch defense of marginalized people everywhere,” Yarhi-Milo said.
As a complement to the university’s “Fourth Purpose” initiative, Clinton also will help lead a major SIPA effort to convene outstanding policy thinkers from around the world to develop innovative policy solutions.
In her role with Columbia World Projects, Clinton will be helping Executive Vice President for Columbia Global and CWP Director Wafaa El-Sadr and CWP Deputy Director Ira Katznelson explore the fundamental questions on how to advance efforts to renew democracy and foster effective engagements with women and youth in this country and around the world.
“We look forward to welcoming this extraordinarily accomplished global leader and passionate advocate for women, children, and social justice to Columbia World Projects. We are eager for her contributions to our efforts to advance rigorous scholarship and pursue sound policies and effective actions,” said El-Sadr.
