Connect with SIPA
Both virtually and in-person
SIPA is located on Columbia University’s campus in Morningside Heights, a lively Manhattan neighborhood that bridges the Upper West Side and Harlem. Our home in the International Affairs Building is an energetic hub where our community comes together for classes, studying, student life, and a wide range of events.
