Columbia community's annual celebration in Santiago


Join the Columbia Alumni Association of Chile and the Santiago Global Center for the Columbia community's annual celebration, during which we will honor two distinguished alumni.

First, we will recognize the celebrated lawyer and law professor Alfredo Etcheberry ’55LAW, recipient of the 2022 Outstanding Columbia University Alumnus award.

And, in memory of Karen Poniachik ’90SIPA, our friend, mentor and driving force behind the CAA Chile and the Santiago Center, we will launch the Memory Album, a book featuring anecdotes and stories describing the experiences of more than 200 Chilean alumni while at Columbia. Everyone who submitted entries for this album will receive a complimentary copy of the book.

We look forward to hearing about your current work and future projects, and catching up before the year ends.

If you’re coming by car, there's paid parking at the Centro Gabriela Mistral on Villavicencio 354. The closest subway stations are Universidad Católica on the 1 line and Bellas Artes on the 5 line.

There’s limited capacity so we encourage early registration. Please share this invitation with your alumni friends in Chile who might not be in our database.
