The Office of Public Affairs is comprised of two departments: Communications and Government and Community Affairs.
Communications serves as the voice of Columbia, telling the University story as a global research and teaching institution to a range of audiences, including our neighbors in Upper Manhattan. We help craft and execute the overall communications strategy of the University to further the priorities of the president and trustees.
Government and Community Affairs is Columbia’s primary liaison with federal, state, and local government, as well as with residents, community leaders, and civic organizations in the neighborhood. We have special responsibilities with the Manhattanville Campus and the West Harlem Community Benefits Agreement.
