Land Acknowledgement

Columbia University School of the Arts recognizes Manhattan as part of the ancestral and traditional homeland of the Lenni Lenape and Wappinger people. By acknowledging the legacies of displacement, migration, and settlement that have enabled us to gather, we are taking a small first step toward the long and overdue process of healing and repair. The School of the Arts will continue to confront and address issues of exclusion, erasure, and systemic discrimination in our community through ongoing education and responsible representation.
