The Office of Communications and Public Affairs serves as the voice of Columbia, telling the University’s story as a global research and teaching institution to a wide range of audiences. We help craft and execute the overall communications strategy of the University to further the priorities of the President and Trustees. In collaboration with partners across campus, we aim to increase understanding of Columbia’s impact as one of the world’s leading universities.
