We provide Columbia University students, faculty and staff with central computing and communications services including email, telephone service, web publishing, computer labs and electronic classrooms, course management and student information applications, office and administrative applications, and management of the high-speed campus Ethernet and wireless networks. We also manage an array of computer labs, terminal clusters, ColumbiaNet stations, multimedia classrooms, and provide a variety of technical support services.
Columbia University Information Technology (CUIT) supports mission-critical technology for Columbia’s over 40,000 students, faculty and staff.
At CUIT, we believe our ability to deliver high-quality, stable, and secure technology solutions and services to the Columbia community, while providing the IT leadership required to guide the University on its path toward the future, starts with our commitment to our core values—as well as being able to attract, hire and retain diverse talent.
We see gender equality at CUIT as being more than just an ideal to strive for, but an essential element of an inclusive, innovative, and attractive workplace. For instance, the Women in Technology (WIT@CU) employee resource group exists to empower and encourage women at all stages of their career development to reach for their fullest professional and personal potential by creating opportunities to learn from and inspire one another, as well as foster open dialogue about the unique challenges and issues faced by women in the technical field.
We also offer a wide range of benefits to help our employees manage the demands of work and life, with specific benefits geared to working women. This includes generous benefits for fertility treatment, adoption and surrogacy assistance, and up to 10 weeks of paid family leave following the birth, adoption or fostering of a child; to care for a family member with a serious health condition; or for qualifying needs arising out of a family member’s covered active duty in the military.
Working at Columbia University comes with a comprehensive package of benefits designed to allow eligible faculty and staff to create a program suited to their needs and those of their family. Employees and their eligible dependents—spouse or same-sex domestic partner and eligible children—are eligible for benefits on the date of hire.
