Global Leadership Awards Gala
April 8, 2016 | Mandarin Oriental Hotel
SIPA's Global Leadership Awards honor individuals who have made innovative or extraordinary contributions to the global public good. Honorees exemplify the values and qualities that SIPA strives to instill in our students, and all proceeds raised provide critical fellowship support for the next generation of global citizens and public policy leaders.
As the world's most global public policy school, its mission is both ambitious and powerfully relevant: to serve the global public interest by educating students to serve and lead by producing new knowledge on the critical public policy changes facing the global community.
SIPA draws its strengths from the resources of Columbia University and New York City as well as partners in London, Paris, Berlin, Singapore, Beijing, Mexico City, and São Paulo. SIPA boasts a student body that is nearly 50 percent international and an alumni network of more than 19,000 graduates in 155 countries.
Dean Merit E. Janow and a few of SIPA's remarkable students and friends have extended invitations to the celebration; watch their video messages below.
