Statement Regarding Paris
November 14, 2015
Columbia has a longstanding academic presence in Paris at Reid Hall in the Montparnasse District, which is home to Columbia Global Center Europe. President Bollinger and other members of the University administration have been monitoring events since Friday night and were in prompt communication with our staff in Paris.
Based on rapid outreach there overnight, we believe that all Columbia students and faculty at the Paris Global Center are safe and accounted for.
We continue to monitor the situation through all of our schools and will update this information if appropriate. With the rest of the world, we watched these developments with the greatest concern; our thoughts are with the people of Paris and all those affected by these events.
