World Leaders Forum Workshops

With the World Leaders Forum, Columbia has a rich tradition of bringing heads of state and other leaders to campus to explore the large economic, political, and social questions of our time. Now, undergraduates can join that conversation through workshops and meetings that will deepen their understanding of global issues.

The Undergraduate Committee on Global Thought (UCGT) organizes workshops in collaboration with World Leaders Forum events. At these WLF Workshops, students have the opportunity to discuss the most acute issues facing their generation, including climate change, economic inequality and corporate practices, with the policymakers and thinkers who make decisions that matter. In doing so, undergraduates can become more globally conscious citizens, and part of a more Global Columbia.

Undergraduates have the opportunity to participate in a small workshops with leading Columbia University faculty as well as possibly participating in a closed-door meeting with World Leaders Forum speakers. Furthermore, workshop attendees have a special opportunity to attend the World Leaders Forum event. To view upcoming and past WLF workshops, click on the links below.
