Questionnaire 2003 (English) (Romanian)
  
Like all the groups of international students and/or professionals, we want to better define our pluses and minuses. Much has been said about the shortcomings of the psychology of the Romanians; even more has been said (and written) about what makes us unique, exquisite, amazing, different. During the fall semester of 2003 the "Nicolae Iorga" Chair of Romanian Language and Culture at Columbia sent a simple questionnaire to the members of our Romanian Club, in order to see how they react to the eternal problem of our identity in the contemporary world.

Constantinescu (center) with President Rupp and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Richard Holbrooke.   After 26-year hiatus Nicolae Iorga Visiting Professorship at Columbia is re-established
   The President of Romania, EMIL CONSTANTINESCU, visits Columbia (SIPA records)
On June 10th, 1998, Romanian President Emil Constantinescu visited Columbia University and addressed an audience of 250 people in the Low Rotunda. Hosted by Columbia President George Rupp, Harriman Institute National Advisory Council Chairman Ambassador Richard C. Holbrooke, Dean of the School of International Affairs Lisa Anderson, and East Central European Center Director John S. Micgiel, the former Rector of Bucharest University and Professor of Geology spoke about Romania on the Threshold of the New Millenium, his country's geopolitical location, and the connection between academia and politics. He also re-established the Nicolae Iorga Visiting Professorship of Romanian Studies at the East Central European Center after a 26-year hiatus. The professorship, named for the esteemed Romanian historian, was established at Columbia in 1971 in a cooperative agreement with the University of Bucharest. Its renewal signals the Romanian President's strong interest in academic cooperation between his country and the United States. The ceremonies in the Rotunda included the presentation of a substantial collection of Romanian books to the University library, followed by a meeting with Professor Don Melnick and the staff of the Center for Environmental Research and Conservation, and a tour of University facilities associated with Nicolae Iorga.
