The Communications team, within the Office of Public Affairs, 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. In collaboration with partners across our campuses, we aim to increase understanding of Columbia’s impact as one of the world’s leading universities.
