Calendaring Platform

Columbia University Events is a comprehensive list of events occurring all over Columbia's campuses and locations globally. Users can search by date, location, type of event, organization or audience to find details that can be downloaded to most personal calendar clients.

The Office of Communications and Public Affairs in partnership with Columbia University Information Technology produced this calendar, which is powered by the open-sources platform Bedework. Bedework was developed by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and is now part of the Apereo Foundation. Communications and Public Affairs administrates approval of events submitted for inclusion in the calendar and sets policy for calendar user; CUIT provides expertise in the way of application development, training and technical support.
