News and Updates for Jan 2013
Nearly 200 members of the Class of 2013 gathered on January 28 for the launch of the 2013 Senior Fund. The event raised nearly $7,500, securing a $5,440 pledge from College Dean James J. Valentini and placing the fund well on its way to its goal of $22,000 by May.
Join James J. Valentini, the new dean of Columbia College and vice president for undergraduate education, and Jon Abbott '84CC, president and CEO of WGBH Boston, for a lively discussion focusing on Dean Valentini's unusual journey to Columbia, how he sees Columbia College as "the greatest college in the greatest university in the greatest city in the world," how to make Columbia even better, and what "better" actually means.
