The establishment of the Columbia Global Centers | Santiago in March 2012 under the leadership of Karen Poniachik represents a milestone for Columbia University. The Center has established extensive partnerships with the local academic community, organizations, and policy groups that have a wide range of programs.
The Center occupies a 400-square-foot, two-suite office on the first floor of the Flacso building in the Vitacura neighborhood of Santiago, adjacent to the headquarters of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the office of the International Labor Organization. The Center also enjoys full access to the Flacso building’s auditorium, which seats up to 70 guests, as well as two classrooms with a capacity of 40 people each. The Center currently employs one full-time staff member based in New York, and a part-time assistant in Santiago.
