More than 400 alumni, students, faculty, administrators and friends of Columbia College filled Low Rotunda for the annual Alexander Hamilton Award Dinner on November 17 as Richard E. Witten ’75 received the Alexander Hamilton Medal.
Each fall, the Columbia College Alumni Association presents the medal to an alumnus or faculty member for distinguished service and accomplishment. It is the highest honor the College bestows.
Witten, a former partner and managing director of Goldman Sachs, is one of Columbia’s most involved alumni. He is vice-chair of the Board of Trustees, chair of the Trustees’ Committee on Alumni Relations and Development, a member of the board of the Columbia University Investment Management Company and former chair of the College Board of Visitors.
