The Harriman Institute at Columbia University is one of the leading academic institutions devoted to Russian, Eurasian and Eastern European studies. Our mission is to serve our community at the university and beyond by supporting instruction and dialogue, sponsoring vibrant and multidiscilpinary events that bring together our extraordinary resources of faculty, students, and alumni. Most importantly, we are committed to training the next generation of regional specialists to play leadership roles in setting the academic and scholarly agenda, making policy and challenging accepted truths about how we study our rapidly changing world.
