Revised Sexual Respect Initiative will offer more workshops, more time for students to complete initiative

Monday, October 19, 2015

Columbia’s Sexual Respect and Community Citizenship Initiative, which is required for new students and returning students who have not already completed the program, will offer a greater variety of programming options and give students more time to finish the requirement than last year.

“The goal here is to encourage students to be reflecting and acting throughout the school year on the link between sexual respect and being a student at Columbia,” Executive Vice President for University Life Suzanne Goldberg said.


The Office of University Life will store sign-up forms and information about available workshops on the Sexual Respect website, though completion of the requirements will be tracked separately on CourseWorks.

Students who indicated they wanted to get more involved after last year’s Initiative were invited to participate in vetting workshops for the new initiative and stand on student advisory committees.
