The Asian American Alliance (AAA) is a student organization that strives to promote understanding, foster dialogue and create a sense of awareness within the Asian Pacific American community at Columbia University. It seeks to educate and address key issues and topics that affect the APIA community at Columbia and beyond.


First Generation Low-Income Partnership

As many students who identify as first-generation and/or low-income may agree, Columbia University does not always offer the appropriate safe spaces or platforms for students to talk about issues that pertain to them. In order to raise awareness about class issues, build a first generation and/or low-income community that transcends all barriers, foster an open and respectful campus environment, engage in a cross-class dialogue, advocate on behalf of the community, lead service projects pertaining to these issues and empower first-generation low-income students at Columbia, we are looking to start a conversation amongst students about what our community needs.

Club Zamana is the largest undergraduate South Asian organization at Columbia University, and a functional umbrella for the South Asian groups on campus.
The Columbia Pre-Law Society provides prospective law students with a forum to discuss, interact, and debate with our nation’s laws, processes, and legal professionals. We organize panels, mixers, and informal discussions to facilitate networking both within our membership and with legal professionals. We provide pre-law students with the necessary resources to foster their interests or to motivate the further exploration of existing legal interests.

As a club we organize a variety of activities, from doing scientific demonstrations for young students, organizing informal and formal talks with professors, and to making liquid nitrogen ice cream for the student body! Every spring we host the Grandpierre Lecture, where we choose and invite a speaker to come and talk about their research to the Chemistry Department.  Every year we try to expand our scope of activities, so we’re always happy to have new members with fresh ideas and who are interested in science!
Nonprofit Organizations: 

At One Love, we believe that the more we can identify and navigate healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, the less likely we will end up in an unhealthy or abusive relationship. Knowing that knowledge is key to avoiding tragedies, we empower people to understand that one conversation, one action and one person can make a difference and even save a life.


We provide REFUGE, RECOVERY & RENEWAL to survivors of trauma. We started out very small, but our dreams were anything but. The founders envisioned helping women rise above violence and move beyond trauma. And we have been working to make those dreams a reality. Collectively, Womankind strives towards reducing inequality and inequity in our society—the underpinnings of violence. But, there is still a ways to go.


logoOnly With Consent

Only With Consent is dedicated to stopping sexual violence through consent and health education. We exist to provide resources to young people so that they can make healthy choices. By upsetting rape culture, and generating consent culture we will help create a safe space for people across the world. Our goals are to educate people of all ages about consent and encourage all people to take action. We are creating age-appropriate educational curriculum that can be used in schools across the country. This will open up dialogue around consent which is the first and most important step towards creating consent culture.
