AMPS is a student government group, representing all APAM graduate students and working to enhance their experience at Columbia. Our mission is primarily focused on:

  • Planning social, academic, and professional events
  • Building community between Master's and PhD students, faculty, and alumni
  • Advocating on behalf of students with the department and the school
  • Communicating with students about topics relevant to them in the broader community

All our meetings are open to all APAM graduate students and can be found on the calendar page. To become more involved, join a committee to assist the executive board members in this work, or run for an executive board position.
