A collaboration between the university's seven regional institutes with the aim to bring together scholars and students to engage in dialogue, research projects, and curricular initiatives that transcend borders and the traditional area studies model of education.

Institutes Global Connections is a Columbia University partnership that highlights the extensive on-campus and overseas collaboration between the university's seven regional institutes. Our aim is to bring together scholars and students to engage in dialogue, research projects, and curricular initiatives that transcend borders and the traditional area studies model of education. Through this exchange of expertise, we design innovative courses, develop new ways of studying abroad, and co-sponsor events throughout the academic year that strive to put local issues into global perspectives for the greater Columbia community and the general public.
