The Columbia University Irving Medical Center is a diverse, academic community of more than 10,000 students, faculty, and staff from across the nation and the world, living and learning on a dynamic campus in a great, global city.

We foster a welcoming and inclusive community by supporting students in the development of skills and awareness of self and others required to responsibly engage, serve and lead at Columbia, in New York City and beyond.

Our goal is for students to feel at home as part of the Columbia University community. To this end, faculty and administrative staff work together to create a student-centered experience.
