Welcome to CU Turath.
Columbia and Barnard's Arab Students Association
Turath is a nonpartisan undergraduate student association that serves to promote Arab culture at Columbia University. Our aim is to spread educational awareness about issues pertaining to the Arab world and celebrate the heritage of the Arab community. We provide a voice for students on campus who identify as Arabs, and foster a sense of Arab unity within the larger Columbia community. We achieve these goals by sponsoring events pertaining to Arab culture and identity, in which all students are welcome to participate. Turath prides itself in both supporting Arabs on campus, and reaching out to alumni networks and other Arab communities in the New York area and around the world.
