Suggestions from the staff of the Center for Social Solutions for intriguing material on issues we care about. Whether you prefer written, video or audio content, learn more about the stories behind our initiatives in this week’s media highlights.
Today, the center focuses on the future of work in Michigan, our home state.
The Center for Social Solutions fosters collaborations that diagnose and solve critical social problems. We believe these solutions rely on multiple diverse perspectives that account for the multi-faceted root causes of these issues. Our four founding issues—diversity, slavery, water access, and the future of work—approach different aspects of the equality necessary to advance as a prosperous democratic society.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Center for Social Solutions needs your support.
We mourn the loss of our colleague, Katherine Phillips, the Reuben Mark Professor of Organizational Character, at the Columbia’s Business School who passed away on January 15, 2020. Professor Phillips joined the Business School in 2011. Highly regarded for her research and expertise on diversity in the workplace, she was equally devoted to teaching and mentoring her students, collaborating with colleagues, and creating an inclusive community. Phillips was a contributor to the second volume of the Our Compelling Interests series.
