Jeffrey Sachs

Dear Colleague,

One of the exciting developments at the start of the school year is the range of new educational programming around sustainable development. The Earth Institute is proud to be an initiator and partner of many of these new initiatives—including the launch of several exciting classes and the start of the Master of Public Administration in Development Practice at SIPA, now in its first semester. 

The Earth Institute has taken up the challenge to help Columbia University lead in all facets of sustainable development, including path-breaking educational programs and classes, cutting-edge scientific research, ingenious technological advances, exciting public education, major demonstration projects, and global problem solving. We're thrilled to be addressing the challenge of sustainable development and contributing to the life of our great campus on so many fronts. We're extremely proud of Columbia's students for embracing this global challenge in so many creative and dedicated ways.

Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute

Better Development Professionals

M.P.A. in Development Practice   Typically, development professionals do not have the background in the natural and health sciences they need to properly understand the complex forces affecting issues such as hunger and extreme poverty. The innovative M.P.A. in Development Practice is meant to change that.
