Columbia University is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming educational environment for all students within the broader community. Consistent with these values and applicable law, Columbia maintains comprehensive policies and procedures designed to protect members of the University community from discrimination on the basis of sex or gender, which includes gender-based misconduct such as sexual harassment and sexual assault, stalking, and other forms of discrimination.

Students, faculty, staff and members of the University community will find information regarding our policy and procedures related to sex discrimination and sexual misconduct. At any time, an individual may also consult the Title IX coordinator to report a concern.

The Gender-Based Misconduct Office, within Student Conduct and Community Standards, provides these services:
  • Conducts investigations and coordinates the disciplinary process related to gender-based misconduct complaints against students from all parts of the University;
  • Assists students who seek to bring complaints against University employees; and
  • Serves as a centralized resource to support and provide assistance to all University students who have experienced or have been accused of gender-based misconduct.
