Created in 2002, the Alliance Program is a unique academic joint venture between Columbia University, the Ecole Polytechnique, Sciences Po and the Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. These four leading universities share a common vision of their evolving role in a world of interdependence and complexity. Together, they represent tomorrow’s global university: "Un des nec plus ultra des réseaux internationaux des grandes écoles s’appelle Alliance" (Le Monde de l’Education).
Every year, more than 240 students and 80 professors benefit from the Alliance partnership, and 40 conferences are organized in Paris and New York on the pressing issues of our time. Through innovative collaboration in the areas of education and research, the Alliance Program supports global dialogue at the highest level, within and beyond the academic community.
The Alliance Program is now endowed at Columbia University for what is, in Columbia history, the first joint endowment with international partners. It is supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs for its exemplary academic collaborative work and contribution to transatlantic debate.
The Centre for the Americas works in close partnership with the Alliance Program on various transatlantic projects.
