1983 in Columbia history:

  • Columbia College becomes a coeducational institution for the first time, following the failure of a merger agreement with Barnard. As compensation to Barnard, however, the Columbia-Barnard Intercorporate Agreement is amended to give Barnard joint control over the schools' tenuring processes.
  • The men's soccer team plays in the NCAA championship


  • May: Mortimer Adler earns an honorary bachelors degree from Columbia despite refusing to take the Swim Test six decades earlier


  • The football team ties a game with Bucknell, giving rise to a streak of 44 consecutive winless games that lasts until 1988.
