CGT Undergraduate Committee
CGT’s Undergraduate Committee unites undergraduates interested in engaging issues of global relevance about which they are passionate.
Designed as an opportunity for Columbia’s undergraduate students to gain access to distinguished scholars and practitioners, from the Columbia community and beyond, whose work brings them to the forefront of global trends. Students on the Undergraduate Committee, in tandem with CGT staff, will plan and execute events which will facilitate conversation on a wide-range of topics. The Committee on Global Thought faculty hope to encourage Columbia undergraduates to engage issues and consider broad and interdisciplinary solutions and methodologies in addressing them.
Students on the Undergraduate Committee have the opportunity to engage with CGT members and fellows, as well as outside lecturers, in CGT-sponsored events each semester.
The next event will be “Your Global Thoughts? A Forum with President Lee C. Bollinger” on November 21st from 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. in Earl Hall Auditorium. Join students in a discussion on what global education means to Columbia University! Open to all Cumbia University undergraduate students. Register for this event is full and is now closed.
The next UCGT planning meeting will take place in early December. Please check soon for more details.
