Office of Research

The Climate School’s Office of Research nurtures Columbia’s community of established and future environmental leaders, through proposal development, programmatic engagement, and compliance support. We facilitate basic and translational research to forge a more sustainable, prosperous, and inclusive future for all.

Columbia investigators are encouraged to contact us with questions or feedback.
Members of the press media are invited to visit the Climate School’s News Room.
