During your time at Columbia we strongly encourage you to actively participate in student life by joining one of the nearly 30 student groups, known as caucuses. Caucuses provide the opportunity to cultivate relationships with your peers while advocating for a cause that is important to you. Below is our current caucus list as well as information on the caucuses and their current leaders. If you have any questions about caucuses or would like to start your own, please reach out to Student Life at email@example.com.
