• Support the academic development of fellows by matching them with a relevant faculty member that would provide mentorship, advice and support;
• Strengthen global connectedness by linking emerging displaced scholars to academics, practitioners, and experts across the Columbia Global Centers’ network;
• Facilitate experiential learning opportunities for fellows, where they could assume a supporting role in program administration and implementation;
• Support fellows with convening roundtable discussions, planning conferences, and giving talks related to their subject areas;
• Enable emerging displaced scholars to embark on academic projects, including publication of their work, in a safe environment; and,
• Highlight the research work of emerging displaced scholars by disseminating their intellectual products and facilitating exchange through the Columbia Global Centers’ network and with relevant Columbia University schools and institutes.
