INTERACT is a pioneering program at Columbia University that focuses on developing global studies in the undergraduate curriculum through a network of postdoctoral scholars focused on cross-regional, trans-regional and interdisciplinary study. Each year, postdoctoral scholars are selected by centers and institutes across the University, and function as liaisons between their home office and the INTERACT network of scholars.
INTERACT's primary goal is to improve global literacy among Columbia students and equip them to be leaders in a globalizing world. These objectives will be met through innovative courses, participating in campus programs and events, and an annual educator workshop organized collaboratively by INTERACT Fellows.
The Weatherhead East Asian Institute is proud to be a founding member of the INTERACT Network, and each year recruits one highly qualified candidate for the position. Prospective applicants can find out more here.
