Through the Multicultural Affairs Advisory Board and the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Diversity Initiative Grant is available to Columbia-recognized student organizations to support events that fulfill at least two of the following objectives: foster diversity education, promote multicultural awareness, and create avenues for cross-cultural dialogue.
Under1Roof is a required program for all incoming first year students in Columbia College and Columbia Engineering. It explores how we individually and collectively create an inclusive community at Columbia University. It provides the framework on how intergroup understanding and community building are achieved through continual engagement and education about the different social identities that all students bring to campus. It is the exciting beginning of a sustained dialogue that we hope will last throughout a student’s education here and beyond.
On Friday, July 18, 2014, Columbia's Office of Multicultural Affairs is hosting an All-Ivy meeting of colleagues from offices focused on undergraduate diversity, social justice, identity development, and inclusion.
