Can anyone tell me if Columbia is a research university?

Hi everyone, I'm a junior who's interested in conducting research during college, and I've been considering applying to Columbia University. However, I'm not sure if it's considered a research university or not. Can anyone provide some insight into this? Thanks in advance!
