To help address the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Columbia University has taken a number of measures to support our Neighbors and help ensure the resilience of the Upper Manhattan community during this difficult time.
The Columbia Neighbors Food Relief Fund was established to bring together the extraordinary resources of the entire Columbia community to heighten awareness, raise funds, and deploy resources to address food insecurity in Upper Manhattan. To date, more than $100,000 has been distributed to support food relief efforts.
Partnered with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer to create a series of town halls on issues our neighbors are facing during the pandemic.
Researchers at Columbia University have developed COVID-19 Trial Finder, a simplified method for patients, clinicians, and healthy volunteers to search for appropriate COVID-related clinical trials nearby.
Columbia Neighbors extends our wholehearted support and gratitude to the workers providing essential services during this time. The University continues to have a deep commitment to the well-being of our neighbors.
