Date: April 5, 2003
Event: Columbia Community Outreach
Columbia Community Outreach seeks to unite the students, alumni, faculty, administrators and staff at Columbia with members of the community. Public schools, neighborhood parks and local organizations are involved in the project planning. Faculty, staff, and student groups are encouraged to assemble "teams" and work together at project sites, such as parks, soup kitchens, and the like. In each of the past two Outreach days, over 1,000 participants volunteered at over 40 sites city-wide, assisting with programs including Habitat for Humanity, United Against Hunger, and the Citywide Harm Reduction Program. They served at homeless shelters, renovated local schools, replanted gardens and cleaned up public parks. Last year, Columbia Community Outreach student organizers raised over $10,000 in sponsorship.

Seen But Not Heard
Date: Thursday, November 7, 2002; Monday, May 5, 2003
Event: Seen But Not Heard, a film by Calogero Salvo
Seen But Not Heard follows the lives of four Mexican women and their families whose undocumented husbands and partners lost their lives in the tragic events of 9/11. Shot in New York and Mexico, this program traces the personal, social and economic repercussions of this act of terrorism of their lives. From the search and grieving for their loved ones, to their legal status and uncertain future, the program creates an intimate portrayal of human survival. As the story unfolds it becomes more apparent that while these immigrants have come to the U.S. to work in order to provide a better future to their family they are also making a valuable contribution to our society.
