On October 24, President Lee C. Bollinger led a ceremony attended by distinguished faculty, deans, and students, as well as local civic and community leaders and internationally renowned architect Renzo Piano of Renzo Piano Building Workshop, which designed the campus master plan with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Piano also designed the first buildings to rise on the campus: the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, which houses the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, and the Lenfest Center for the Arts.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton recently won Columbia’s 2016 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History. The hip-hop musical based on Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton reimagines the American Revolution and the early years of the Republic with a cast of predominantly Black and Latino actors. Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith created the $100,000 prize, administered by Columbia Libraries, to honor her brother, the late senator from Massachusetts. This year’s jury, which included Columbia professors Farah Jasmine Griffin, Rashid Khalidi, and James Shapiro ’77CC, selected Hamilton because it “celebrates the evolving history of the United States, of hip-hop, and of the musical theater.” (For more on Hamilton, see Columbia Magazine’s Winter 2015 feature story “Hamilton is in the House.”) Read more of this article at Columbia Magazine.

Manhattanville

As new fields of knowledge emerge, the nation's universities are growing to pursue the expanding missions of teaching, research, public service, and patient care. With only a fraction of the space enjoyed by our leading peers across the country, Columbia has had to face an especially critical need for space in a dense urban environment.

While Columbia is a globally respected academic center, it is also a vital local New York institution, committed to the economic, intellectual, social, and cultural vitality of our neighborhoods and city. In that spirit, together with our West Harlem neighbors, elected representatives, and civic leaders, Columbia has developed a plan for a mixed-use academic center that provides a long-term future of shared opportunity in the old Manhattanville manufacturing zone of West Harlem.
