[A] About Us

Global Support is managed through collaboration and oversight of the Finance offices including Treasury, the Controller, Purchasing and the Office of the General Counsel as well as under the advice of the International Administrative Working Group.


The academic and administrative challenges posed by increased globalization bring a host of ever-changing issues and demands.  Global Support will strive to maintain an up-to-date source of information and tools to aid the Columbia community engaged in international activities to better manage their responsibilities and to continue to adhere to the highest academic and fiscal standards.
