The University’s Board of Trustees and President Lee C. Bollinger have agreed to continue his service for four additional years beyond 2018, to 2022. In the past few years, Bollinger has taken steps to build diversity across the University and toward expansion of the campus. In the March 21 announcement, Bollinger said, “It is, for me, the highest privilege to be able to play a role in one of the great eras in Columbia’s long and distinguished history. Above all, however, what captures my complete dedication is the still-to-be-realized potential of this extraordinary institution to benefit humanity … through the core mission of advancing knowledge and understanding.”
