Student Development and Activities
Student Development and Activities (SDA) is committed to helping students enhance their leadership skills and to explore the co-curricular opportunities available at Columbia University. SDA forges a sense of community by providing opportunities for social interaction and student participation in community life and student governance. Whether you are looking for advisement with running your organization, planning an event, organizing your financial records, starting a student group, or if you just want to brainstorm, the SDA staff is here to support you.
We provide student organizations with invaluable resources. Advisers are available to assist in your development as a campus leader as well as to support student organizations in their particular objectives.
Additional programs sponsored by Student Development and Activities include the New Student Orientation Program, Columbia Outdoor Orientation Programs, Columbia Urban Experience, Urban New York, Live at Lerner and a variety of other campus events.
The Student Development and Activities staff, as well as the student groups across campus, are here to help you become a part of campus life. You can visit our office Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00AM and 5:00PM, to meet our staff and learn more about our student groups and programs.
