Columbia University in the City of New York


These are resources that may be useful for undocumented students at Columbia, including DACA recipients. The documents and links here are not intended to provide legal advice; instead, they provide information that may be educational for students and others in our community.   

University help desk services now provide a dedicated resource for students who have questions about student payroll and stipend payments: Submit an inquiry online or call (212) 854-5000.

Workshops and training are not about a preferred type of sex, or even about encouragement of sexual contact at all (though I’m told that many workshops do provide fun and useful information). Instead, they help underscore how important it is in our community that students treat each other with respect in this realm.

But what is sexual respect, anyway? And why should you care?

While it is increasingly difficult to repeat and relive what many of us may be feeling – anger, sorrow, disbelief or profound frustration – there are multiple resources for community and support on campus, including tonight's (9/22) Space for Students to Connect, Reflect and Heal with the Office of Multicultural Affairs. 

For many, the recent news of an explosion in the city in which dozens were injured can be unsettling.

Sexual Respect

This report from the Columbia University Gender-Based Misconduct Prevention Task Force - dozens of students, faculty members and staff from across Columbia - summarizes the group’s work to date and outlines recommendations for the University, some of which already are underway.

Sexual Respect

This report is part of Columbia's commitment to prevent and address gender-based misconduct including sexual assault within our community.

Our hearts go out to those who have lost family members and friends from police shootings, and we mourn with the communities reeling from the fatal shootings of police officers during otherwise peaceful protests in Dallas. We also recognize that this comes amidst recent massive violence in the world, and that it will take a sustained mix of education, research, advocacy and activism to bring about change, all of which are central to the work of a leading university like Columbia. 

On Wednesday night, Columbia’s campus served as a place of sanctuary and community for the nearly 150 students, faculty, and staff who gathered to mourn the victims of the attack.

We are deeply saddened by the horrific attack at Pulse Orlando, a gay nightclub in Florida. See more from Columbia's remembrance and show of solidarity here.
