Every year, the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) recognizes alumni for distinguished service of 10 years or more to the University—including its schools, alumni associations, regional Columbia Clubs, and University-wide initiatives. The Medal was first awarded in 1933 and is the highest honor bestowed to alumni by the University.
The medals will be formally awarded at Columbia Commencement. Tune in to watch the live broadcast on May 18.
