Columbia In the News

Each week, news publications and broadcast media in New York and around the nation carry hundreds of stories that involve, or at least mention, Columbia, our schools, programs and research, our faculty, students and alumni. The Office of Public Affairs prepares weekly on-line summaries -- arranged chronologically below -- of the more interesting and representative of these stories. For further information about these reports or individual stories, please call the Office of Public Affairs at 212-854-5573, or email
