Alumni volunteers gathered on campus October 7–8 for the 12th annual Columbia Alumni Leaders Weekend. Sponsored by the Columbia Alumni Association, it featured interactive sessions for volunteers from across all schools, an Alumni Leaders Luncheon and the annual Alumni Medalists Gala. Sheena Wright ’90, LAW’94, president and CEO of United Way of New York City (pictured), gave the keynote speech, and three College alumni — Dr. Paul J. Maddon ’81, GSAS’88, PS’88; Rita Pietropinto-Kitt ’93, SOA’96; and Mozelle W. Thompson ’76, SIPA’79, LAW’81 — were among the 10 medalists honored at the gala.
