The Columbia University alumni series spoke with 1994 SIPA graduate Elizabeth Rose Daly, who created Liz Daly’s Culture Digest as a way to share her love of New York City’s amazing cultural offerings and showcase some of the lesser known arts and cultural presentations.
You often hear of our Seeples doing amazing things in the world and pursuing additional research. This week a 2004 graduate co-authored a paper about how Turkey's civil society can help the country "confront deep political and social problems." Dilek Kurban, MIA '04, IF '04, worked on the paper -- "Trends in Turkish Civil Society" -- with the Center for American Progress, the Istanbul Policy Center, and the Istituto Affari Internazionali.
A lot happened at SIPA this year that our incoming Fall 2017 Seeples may need to know about prior to joining the program in September. We welcomed some amazing new faculty and community leaders to campus, created capstone projects with institutions in more than 38 countries, celebrated our 70th anniversary, and added to our summer reading lists with new books by SIPA authors, among other activities.
