Columbia University Technology Week
At the heart of the semester, the dean is asking the whole school to hesitate for a week and reconsider the question of technology. Looking for the right ways to ask. Refusing any tired, simplistic, single, or suspect answer. Opening ourselves to unexplored potentials while celebrating our deepest traditions and ethical responsiblities. Thinking. Together
So every lunchtime and evening throughout the week there will be presentations by professionals on themes that might interest you. The schedule can be found on our website in the link below. Please feel very welcome to come to your school and join in the week-long discussion and the final Halloween Party with Prouv� in Buell Hall.
