Columbia Urban Experience (CUE)

The Columbia Urban Experience (CUE) is a week-long pre-orientation program for 60 Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, Barnard College first-year students. CUE empowers incoming first-years to explore what it means to effectively engage in one's community through direct service in New York City. CUE aims to explore the ethical perspectives of service, obstacles to conducting meaningful work, and forms of thoughtful, sustainable, and responsible service. The CUE community of participants, leaders, and coordinators support and inspire CUErs in their leadership and social justice endeavors at Barnard, Columbia, and beyond. 

The 2019 CUE Program will run from August 18-24, 2019.
