Alliance Graduate Summer School 2021

For information on the 2021 summer school, please refer to this 2021 summer school website.


The Alliance Graduate Summer School is an event organized by the Sustainable Development Doctoral Society of Columbia University.

The Summer School brings together world-class professors, industry experts and graduate students for exchange of ideas, intellectual discourse, and joint-learning opportunities through a mixture of guest speakers and workshops.

The 2021 summer school will take place between the 12th-14th and 19th-20th of May 2021 (8am-2pm EST), online.
