Columbia University Libraries

The Libraries build, sustain, and make discoverable collections that transcend traditional boundaries of format and domain, keeping pace with a dynamic and rapidly evolving information environment and creating unique opportunities for users to encounter global thought. 

Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA)

Columbia University's goal is a workforce and student body that reflects the diversity and talent of New York City, the larger metropolitan area, and the nation. In furtherance of this goal, Columbia has implemented policies and programs which seek to ensure that its employment and educational decisions are based on individual merit and not on bias or stereotypes.

Office of University Life

Columbia is intensely diverse and robustly pluralistic -- with 16 schools and students, faculty and staff from myriad disciplines, backgrounds and experiences. Yet we share a collective commitment to advancing learning and knowledge at the highest level, and to sharing these efforts throughout the world. 

The Office of University Life is your hub for University-wide student life information and initiatives.
