The Columbia University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education acknowledges that our student-athletes are central to all that we do. As the focus of our efforts, the Department has committed itself to being the best at providing our student-athletes with a meaningful undergraduate experience. To accomplish this goal we have a team of professionals, the Enrichment Services staff, who ensure our student-athletes have access to the resources they need.
The Columbia University Athletics Career Development Program is dedicated to serving student-athletes in the areas of career education, professional growth, and leadership training. Columbia Athletics Career Development aspires to provide a best-in-class student-athlete experiential learning and development program.
The Career Development Program is committed to using the student-athlete experience as the cornerstone of defining and achieving each student-athlete’s personal mission.
We achieve our mission through the implementation of the following objectives:
To develop Columbia student-athletes as thoughtful, confident, and passionate leaders who will translate the lessons of the student-athlete experience into meaningful and significant contributions to their chosen career.
Tutorial assistance is available for all student-athletes in the varsity athletics program. In addition to the services provided by Columbia University, the Office of Enrichment Services provides tutors in a variety of subjects to work with students on a group or individual basis.
Student-athletes are matched with tutors who are employed by the Columbia University Athletics Department. Each tutor is carefully selected by the Department based on qualifications and trained by a group of administrators before meeting with a student-athlete. If no tutor is available in a requested discipline, the Tutoring Coordinator will work with campus constituents to attempt to secure tutoring.
The cost of a one-hour Tutoring session is $40 and the average cost for one student-athlete's tutoring for one semester is $450.
