The Alliance Program congratulated last December the awarded long-term Alliance Program Visiting Professors for the 2019 - 2020 academic year. Professors will visit for a full academic term, and teach a course, participate in research activities in their host department, present a seminar, and meet students.
The Alliance Program is an innovative partnership between Columbia University, École Polytechnique, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, and Sciences Po. The four universities collaborate to develop academic partnerships and exchanges through joint projects, visiting professorships, doctoral mobility grants, and student-driven initiatives.
