governments, organizations, businesses and communities to tackle global challenges. CWP devises projects that it staffs and operates with partners in New York City, across the United States, and around the world; hosts the Obama Foundation Scholars Program; and holds events and convenings that engage faculty, students, and community members in our larger mission to connect the worlds of knowledge and action.


Scope of Work

Columbia World Projects seeks a consultant to support the development and implementation of an experiential learning program that substantively engages students at Columbia University, from undergraduate students to doctoral candidates, in the work of CWP and similar social impact-oriented activities across Columbia University. The consultant will work closely with the Fellowship Director at CWP to inform and engage in activities to support the design, development, and launch of the program, including the building of the infrastructure needed to identify, select, prepare, and place Columbia students in hands-on, experiential learning opportunities. To that end, the consultant will be expected to work independently and collaboratively to support a range of activities, including research and analysis; program design, planning, and implementation; and strategic communications. The consultant will be expected to engage and communicate with senior leaders at CWP.

·      A student identification process, including selection criteria, that reflects CWP/Columbia’s commitment to diversity and inclusion

·      Approaches (e.g., surveys, focus groups) for capturing student feedback and insights to inform the development of the pilot program and future iterations of the program

Engagement Terms

·      Depending on prevailing University safety mandates, communication between CWP and contracted consultant is expected to be virtual.
