Columbia University in Kazakhstan
Wednesday 14 September 2011
(Columbia Daily Spectator) – Momentum for a centre in Kazakhstan – something administrators have been discussing since late last year – has ground to a halt.
“There was a major donor who was interested in [Kazakhstan], and that conversation is still ongoing, it just didn’t materialize,” Prewitt said. “We are hoping that that donor will reengage this year.”
But even if Kazakhstan becomes the location of Columbia’s ninth global centre, finding ways to engage undergraduates in the centres has been no easy task for administrators.
