What is Effective Altruism?

Effective Altruism is about answering one simple question: how can we best improve the world? It is a research field which uses evidence and careful reasoning to work out how to help others as much as possible —and it is also a community of people taking these answers seriously, by focusing their efforts on the most promising solutions to the world's most pressing problems.

What we do

We are currently focused on getting students to think about how they can use their careers to do good. This involves running discussion groups and connecting people to career/internship opportunities in the broader EA community. In the near future, we hope to provide research and project opportunities that students can be a part of here at Columbia.
