Undergraduate Committee on Global Thought
The Undergraduate Committee on Global Thought (UCGT) offers an opportunity for Columbia’s undergraduate students to meet and talk with distinguished scholars and practitioners from the Columbia community and beyond whose work places them on the forefront of global trends. This undergraduate group helps to connect global resources to the Columbia University student body to further the interdisciplinary mission of promoting and empowering the enterprise of global thought. The UCGT, now a formally recognized student organization, is open to students from Columbia’s four undergraduate schools. With faculty collaboration, the UCGT members plan the Undergraduate Committee’s public events, workshops with university faculty, and take up issues of undergraduate global education.
The 2016-2017 UCGT Co-Chairs are Joseph Lap (Columbia College, 2018) and Konstantina (Connie) Yaneva (School of General Studies, 2018); advised by CGT faculty members Deborah Coen, Vishakha N. Desai and Carol Gluck.
