Columbia University Double Discovery Center
Kevin C. Matthews
Founded in 1965 as Project Double Discovery, the program was the creation of Columbia undergraduates moved by the disparities between their Ivy League institution and an impoverished Harlem community. Our goals now, as they were then, are high school graduation, college enrollment and completion, career preparation, and responsible adulthood.
