  • History | Columbia University in the City of New York
    I Rabi to name just a few of the great minds of the Morningside campus The University s graduates during this time were equally accomplished for example two alumni of Columbia s School of Law Charles Evans Hughes and Harlan Fiske Stone who was also dean of the School of Law served successively as Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court The construction of South Hall later renamed Butler Library Research into the atom by faculty members I I Rabi Enrico Fermi and Polykarp Kusch brought Columbia s Department of Physics to international prominence in the 1940s The founding of the School of International Affairs now the School of International and Public Affairs in 1946 marked the beginning of intensive growth in international relations as a major scholarly focus of the University The oral history movement in the United States was launched at Columbia in 1948 Columbia celebrated its bicentennial in 1954 during a period of steady expansion This growth mandated a major campus building program in the 1960s and by the end of the decade five of the University s schools were housed in new buildings It was also in the 1960s that Columbia experienced the most significant crisis in its history Currents of unrest sweeping the country among them opposition to the Vietnam War an increasingly militant civil rights movement and the ongoing decline of America s inner cities converged with particular force at Columbia casting the Morningside campus into the national spotlight More than 1 000 protesting students occupied five buildings in the last week of April 1968 effectively shutting down the University until they were forcibly removed by the New York City police Those events led directly to the cancellation of a proposed gym in Morningside Park the cessation of certain classified research projects on campus the retirement of President Grayson Kirk and a downturn in the University s finances and morale They also led to the creation of the University Senate in which faculty students and alumni acquired a larger voice in University affairs Statue of Alexander Hamilton Hamilton Hall In recent decades Columbia s campuses have seen a revival of spirit and energy that have been truly momentous Under the leadership of President Michael Sovern the 1980s saw the completion of important new facilities and the pace intensified after George Rupp became president in 1993 A 650 million dollar building program begun in 1994 provided the impetus for a wide range of projects including the complete renovation of Furnald Hall and athletics facilities on campus and at Baker Field the wiring of the campus for Internet and wireless access the rebuilding of Dodge Hall for the School of the Arts the construction of new facilities for the Schools of Law and Business the renovation of Butler Library and the creation of the Philip L Milstein Family College Library The University also continued to develop the Audubon Biotechnology and Research Park securing Columbia s place at the forefront of medical research As New York
