Join the Office of Work/Life for National Work and Family Month

The Office of Work/Life fosters the well-being of the Columbia community and its people in their pursuit of meaningful and productive academic, personal, and work lives.

In recognition of National Work and Family Month, the Office of Work/Life is offering a variety of workshops. While we all belong to the Columbia University community, between our work, family, and personal lives we each have varied responsibilities and goals.  During the month of October, please join us and explore some of the many resources offered by Work/Life.  And, visit our Fall Workshops and Events page to check out all the other options this semester.
