Continuing a hallowed tradition at Columbia University, the 2023 class of Pulitzer Prize winners gathered with family, friends, colleagues and members of the Pulitzer Board at Low Library on October 19 for a dinner ceremony celebrating their awards. University President Minouche Shafik, 2022-24 Pulitzer Board Co-Chairs Neil Brown & Tommie Shelby and Pulitzer Administrator Marjorie Miller offered remarks, while Miller and President Emeritus Lee Bollinger (who participated in the selection of this year's winners in May before stepping down at the end of the 2022-23 academic year) presented the awards.

Immediately preceding the awards presentation, Bollinger also received a customary commemorative scroll from the Board recognizing his decades of service, marking the longest tenure of a Board member since Joseph Pulitzer, Jr. stepped down in 1987 by virtue of his 21-year presidency. (The tradition of the scroll, granted to Board members at the end of their service, dates back more than forty years, although its origins remain nebulous.) After accepting the scroll, Bollinger characterized his Board service as "the gift of a lifetime."
