Events provide a channel for IGP to engage SIPA students, the Columbia community, and the public at large.
In a highly polarized world, IGP provides a forum for open, respectful dialogue across partisan and ideological divides. IGP’s signature speaker series offer a vital platform to exchange ideas, find common ground, and model constructive debate for the next generation of policy leaders.
This speaker series will bring prominent public- and private- sector leaders to IGP for intimate, in-depth conversations about today’s most pressing global challenges. Speakers will share insights from their experiences: lessons learned, defining current and future challenges, and advice for the next generation of policy leaders.
Across the Aisle
IGP’s Across the Aisle series, generously sponsored by the Knight Foundation, features discussions between prominent domestic and global leaders with opposing viewpoints, with the goal of modeling for students the possibility for and value of respectful civil discourse, which is presently all too rare in our society.
Through online events, faculty interviews, and other editorial products, IGP will release rapid-response analysis, in real time, as events unfold throughout the world, thereby making Columbia’s world-class scholarship more visible, accessible, and impactful.
