Columbia University Global Engagement

AC4 Logo

AC4 is a critical hub for engagement with the topics of social sustainability, peace and conflict around Columbia University and in the field more broadly. AC4 affiliates, including fellows and visiting scholars, have been profiled in our interview series and in our WKCR podcast and radio show, “Conversations from the Leading Edge”, co-hosted by Columbia’s 89.9FM. Additionally, we curate written interviews to profile the work that both CU faculty and outside practitioners are doing for the Earth Institute’s “State of the Planet” blog. Through our public programs and digital platforms, including the online database AC4 Link and social media, we help students and the diverse members of our network learn from each other’s unique experiences and perspectives. Because we strive to hold open space for new forms of dialogue and enact a vision that celebrates complexity, we will continue to grow both our physical and virtual engagement with peacebuilding communities through this content.
