Since its inception in 2016, Soch: Columbia Pakistan Symposium has provided a platform for intercultural and political dialogue. The Symposium is one of the largest undergraduate events focusing on Pakistan in the United States. We annually host attendees from universities all over the U.S. and aim to foster a constructive dialogue that motivates the participants of Soch to produce tangible change within Pakistan and the larger South Asian community in a positive manner. Since the inaugural conference in 2016, we have hosted a number of prominent Pakistani personalities like Maleeha Lodhi, Sarmad Khoosat, Suroosh Alvi, Strings, and Jibran Nasir.
We look forward to (virtually) welcoming you to Columbia and Soch!
