Even though our meetings have ended, there will still be plenty of engaging events on campus this week. This Monday, Dec 5, the Columbia Political Union will be hosting a People's Forum on Philippine President Duterte and U.S. Foreign Policy. The forum will focus on Duterte's war on drugs and the implications for the future of US-Philippines relations. It is scheduled for 9-10pm in Lerner 569. All are welcome to attend and speak.
The Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning will also be hosting an event on Monday, at 2pm. The event, Community Conversation: Teaching after the Election, will feature discussions between students and staff about liberal education and the classroom. Registration is required.
Finally, on Thursday, Dec 8, professors from Columbia, Barnard, and other New York schools will be hosting a panel on sanctuary campuses and their political, social, and historical context. They will also discuss what sanctuary campuses could mean for student mobilization and resistance in the future. The event is scheduled for 6-8pm in the Julius S. Held Lecture Hall at Barnard. The event is free, but space is limited. Registration is required.
See you in 2017!
