Columbia is committed to creating and supporting a community diverse in every way: race, ethnicity, geography, religion, academic and extracurricular interest, family circumstance, sexual orientation, socio-economic background and more. With one of the most generous financial aid programs in the nation, we ensure that our education is accessible to all. We offer a curriculum as pluralistic and polyphonic as New York itself and a community of scholars who embody this commitment to diversity and who encourage discussion and debate.
