The Undergraduate Committee is open to undergraduate students from any of Columbia’s schools. UCGT Members plan the Undergraduate Committee’s public events, decide what faculty undergraduates would most benefit from talking with, and what issues are most important to them. In the past, UCGT Members have worked closely with CGT Faculty, interned at CGT and attended private events. UCGT Members are expected to participate in planning meetings a few times a semester.
