The mission of the K=1 Project is to promote informed debate about nuclear proliferation issues through research, writing, and film. Our Center relies on and benefits from deep engagement of Columbia's talented and hard-working undergraduate students. We believe that theirs is the generation that will help solve the pressing nuclear issues we face in the 21st century.

We invite you to partner with us by supporting our work.  Donations can be made towards area of most need, or they can be specifically directed to: undergraduate educational and research programs, nuclear outreach events, state-of-the-art research instrumentation, or development of educational resources for students and the general public.
