The David Bartsch and Joan Haffenreffer Bartsch Fellows to the UCGT

CGT is excited to announce the 2018-2019 David Bartsch and Joan Haffenreffer Bartsch Fellows to the Undergraduate Committee on Global Thought: Anne Hulthen (General Studies, 2019) and Nicole Liu (Columbia College, 2019). Read more about their backgrounds and interests below.

Nicole Liu (left) is a senior at Columbia College double majoring in history and statistics. She loves reading about history, exploring restaurants in NYC (especially Japanese and Cantonese cuisine) and watching food-related TV shows. Beyond UCGT, she also serves as the co-chair of the Global Recruitment Committee under Columbia’s Admissions Office.

Anne Hulthen (right) is a senior in the dual bachelors’ degree program between the Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po) and the School of General Studies at Columbia. Originally from Ohio, spending her first two years of university on the Franco-Italian border exposed her to the local ramifications of global issues, such as the European refugee crisis. At Columbia, her academic and extracurricular interests center around environmental activism and environmental justice in disaster settings.

The Fellows will work alongside faculty and staff of the CGT to lead the Undergraduate Committee on Global Thought (UCGT), and to plan events and initiatives specifically for undergraduates, such as workshops related to the World Leaders Forums, “Talks With Professors,” and “Global Thought Labs.” The Fellows will also contribute to the expansion of the undergraduate Global Thought curriculum.

The Undergraduate Committee on Global Thought (UCGT) connects undergraduate students to the rich resources on global issues available at Columbia University. Students from Columbia College, the School of General Studies, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and Barnard College join the interdisciplinary work of the CGT, becoming involved in events and initiatives of particular significance to the undergraduate community.
