Making Connections

Columbia Neighbors is where the university connects with its local community, its new friends and neighbors, anyone who looks to the diversity of ideas and experiences in our community and sees the possibility for shared growth, being of service, and connection. 

Neighbors is part resource guide, part community news and storytelling hub, part gathering place. It is for everyone in the communities surrounding our campuses in Upper Manhattan.

In addition to original storytelling about things that may be of interest to our community, Neighbors gathers stories, resources, and events from across Columbia, including the Office of Government and Community Affairs, the CUIMC Office of Government and Community Affairs, and the hundreds of programs across the university that are available to community members at no cost.
