Support and Oversight

At Columbia University, global means working together across traditional academic and geographical boundaries to address critical global challenges. This process is preceded by the development and proposal of the programs that could eventually be implemented overseas. The proposal development and implementation processes for overseas research or service programs must consider a range of factors beyond those associated with programs that are conducted domestically. Throughout this process, one should understand how Columbia University oversees and supports the implementation and operation of overseas programs through schools and departments in New York.
