Messages to the Community

Affirming Columbia’s commitment to an inclusive community

December 10, 2018 - Public declarations of hostility and intolerance cut against core values of our community, even when they are within someone’s rights to express. It is important to restate in the strongest terms Columbia’s deep commitment to a community and a living and learning environment free from discrimination and harassment based on race, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender and other aspects of identity. 


Denouncing Antisemitism and Supporting Our Community

November 29, 2018 - A Jewish faculty member’s office at Teachers College was vandalized yesterday afternoon with swastikas and an antisemitic slur spray-painted on her office walls. The University strongly denounces this antisemitic act that seeks to create fear and to intimidate members of our community.


Student Privacy and the Gender-Based Misconduct Process

November 28, 2018 - The University takes very seriously our commitment to student privacy, and we will not generally share information about individual cases other than with the students who are parties (complainants and respondents) in a case. Here's why...


Proposed Title IX regulations and Columbia’s commitment to gender-based misconduct prevention and response

November 21, 2018 - As we review the newly proposed regulations on Title IX from the U.S. Department of Education, I want to affirm Columbia’s commitment to creating a community free from gender-based misconduct and to responding to incidents that occur with support and processes that are fair to all members of our community and sensitive to the issues involved.
