The 70th Alexander Hamilton Dinner and presentation of the Alexander Hamilton Medal will take place on Thursday, November 16, 2017.
The Alexander Hamilton Medal is the highest honor awarded to a member or members of the College community for distinguished service to the College and accomplishment in any field of endeavor. It is presented by the Columbia College Alumni Association, James J. Valentini, Dean of Columbia College, and Lee C. Bollinger, President of Columbia University.
This year’s Alexander Hamilton Medalist is an extraordinarily devoted Columbia citizen and an ambassador and exemplar of the College and University’s commitment to inquiry, social engagement and transformation. His longtime support of the College and the University continues to make an indelible mark in the classrooms, across the campus and in the community.
