Columbia Alumni Leaders Weekend Overview 

Leaders Weekend is an annual opportunity for Columbia’s alumni leaders to convene from around the world, and from across Schools and the many programs that call upon our alumni to lead the University forward. The weekend is an occasion for volunteer recognition, University updates, skill-building, and sharing of best practices.

A Message from your Alumni Leaders Weekend Co-Chairs

On October 4-6, 2019, hundreds of alumni and students will come together on Columbia's Morningside campus for the fifteenth annual Columbia Alumni Leaders Weekend, and we hope you will be a part of the community. Mark your calendar and save the date!

This year's conference will include both popular traditions of Leaders Weekends past, as well as exciting new content offerings designed to help you build the Columbia community and complement our roles as University alumni leaders and volunteers.

Some highlights include:

  • Hands-on workshops on motivation and persuasion strategies, effective public speaking, maintaining life balance, University ambassador best practices, and more
  • Eye-opening talks, including a She Opened the Door session with inspiring stories from women on corporate and non-profit boards, and an impactful keynote, where an alum will share lessons in leadership
  • Key updates from Columbia senior leadership during the Alumni Leaders Luncheon
  • A complimentary professional headshot station
  • The Alumni Medalist Gala, which celebrates our most dedicated volunteers
  • A Friday evening reception, a Sunday farewell brunch, and other social opportunities to relax and connect with fellow attendees
  • Registration will officially open in August, so stay tuned for a follow-up email.

We hope your summer is going well, and we look forward to seeing you in October!
