After a quiet summer, the first week of classes at Columbia University is typically a jolt of energy. Students fill the halls again, faculty stop by to share stories of their summer research and travel, and the line for coffee at the cafe downstairs gets a lot longer. We put away our summer projects and dive headfirst into the busy semester.
This fall will be different, but it is also a chance to innovate and experiment. The Center for Science and Society has been catching up with faculty and researchers over virtual coffee hours and we've been brainstorming new ways to connect with returning students, welcome new members, and support distanced efforts to build our community. With these goals in mind, we have partnered with our fellow interdisciplinary centers and institutes in an Initiative to Enhance Remote Learning and Teaching at Columbia University.
