Can’t make it to campus, find us on the road

We’re visiting a few places this week so if you can’t make it to Columbia University in Morningside Heights, NYC then find us off campus.

Tonight (Monday, September 15) we’re heading south to midtown east (not that far away but for those who are already working, playing or living in the area, it’s just a faster and easier commute).  We’re participating in an admissions fair with a number of APSIA schools so you can meet a few of us in one evening.  And if international affairs is your kind of thing, you can also participate in a panel discussion with CFR experts discussing the New Middle East.  To register for the event, click here.  There is a small fee to attend the panel discussion but the fair is free (use “APSIA” as the promo code).

This week we’ll also be in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Mexico, and the US capital (Washington, DC).  For a list of where you can find us to learn more about SIPA, visit our website, under “On the Road.”  If you’re in New York and able to visit our lovely campus, come and attend an information session.

As we get ready to say goodbye to our graduating students, we’re also preparing to welcome a new class of students.  All the while starting up our information sessions for interested prospective candidates.

Our May campus sessions have been posted on our website — including our May 13th (oh! that’s next week) 12:00 pm ET virtual online information session.  (Register for it here.)  With all the hustle and bustle of admissions and graduation, we neglected to update the website with all of our summer dates but check back in a day or two and they’ll be up.  Besides our campus and online sessions, you can expect to find us in DC, Chicago, and Berkeley this summer.

Hope to see you around this summer.


you still need more information…

The final application deadline is approaching (February 5).

If you have questions about whether this is the right program for you, come to an information session.  We have scheduled four more on-campus sessions about  SIPA’s two year full time MIA and MPA degree programs this month — There is a session tomorrow ( January, 17) from 12pm to 1:30pm.  If you are in town, drop by.

After our January 31 information session, we will take a short recruitment hiatus during our heaviest application “reading” period.  Of course, we are still around for walk-ins and we’ll be back hosting on-campus sessions in late February/early March.  Be sure to check the Recruitment schedule on our website for further details.

For questions, please contact the Admissions Office at 212-854-6216 or at

hide and seek

If you come looking for us and you can’t find us; it’s because we have been temporarily relocated.

The Admissions Office will be undergoing some repair work this summer so we will be temporarily relocated from the International Affairs Building (IAB) Room 408 to IAB 803/804 from July 18 to July 29.  If you decide to brave the heat and visit us in New York, we will be happy to meet with you (in an air conditioned space).  However, due to space constraints, you should try to plan your visit when we are back in our home suite, IAB 408.

If you are already registered for this Friday’s (July 19th) information session, please arrive at 12pm.  We will be set up for the session directly across the hall from 408.  If you are interested in attending one of our future information sessions, you may register on our website.

This week you can also find us in Washington, D.C.  Come speak with admissions representatives and SIPA alumni at the Summerfest 2013 event held at Johns Hopkins University, SAIS on Thursday, July 18th at 6:00 p.m.  If you can’t make it to Summerfest on Thursday, an admissions representative will be at American University’s Katzen Arts Center for the 11th Annual PPIA Public Service Expo on Friday, July 19th from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Looking forward to meeting you this summer.
