Fall Update

At SPS this fall, all courses, other than pre-established online courses, will be offered face-to-face in our New York City classrooms. Some of these face-to-face courses will be offered in the HyFlex format to ensure that all of our students can make progress toward their degree requirements, if faced with delays due to student visas or vaccination effectiveness wait times.

DEI Event Series

Leading Towards Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Implementing Systemic Change

Organizations in virtually every sector are met with a pointed challenge: to commit to, act on, and increase transparency into their ongoing progress to implement diversity, equity, and inclusion. To create viable, sustainable pathways for achieving a comprehensive DEI agenda, organizations must remove long-held systemic, cultural, and interpersonal barriers at every level. The Leading Towards Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series convenes and connects respected faculty and industry experts across the nonprofit, negotiation, and human capital management sectors for inspiring, solutions-focused conversations on implementing systemic changes that benefit individuals, organizations, and the communities they serve.

This series is brought to you by Columbia University’s Nonprofit ManagementNegotiation and Conflict Resolution, and Human Capital Management master’s programs as part of the University’s ongoing commitment to antiracism.
