What is the University Life Events Council?

The University Life Events Council provides programs and activities for all Columbia students that promote community, well-being, and inclusion & belonging. It is volunteer-based and includes representatives from Columbia's 17 schools. All Council events are free and open to all students from all schools and all campuses.
The Events Council is also a great way for students to get involved with campus life, meet other students from different schools, and gain valuable leadership experience.

Which positions are open for the 2024-2025 academic year?

  • Chairs of Production - The Chairs of Production create and share post-event surveys, track event participants, collect event photos, lead bi-weekly meetings, collaborate with events committees, create staffing plans, determine volunteer needs for events, and create and distribute debrief documents to Events Council committees.
