Join Marjory D. Fisher, Columbia University's Title IX Officer to familiarize yourself with Policies and Procedures addressing gender-based misconduct at Columbia. We will discuss the history of Title IX and how this important federal law interacts with our student policies defining prohibited behaviors on campus. Title IX covers cases involving sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence and stalking.  In some cases, students may decide to report such conduct to the University or to law enforcement. This session will share reporting options as well as options for resolving cases once a report is made. We will discuss the bedrock definition of “affirmative consent,” essential to understanding our Policies, and how to incorporate it into relationships to ensure an atmosphere of sexual respect in the Columbia community. Together with these issues, questions around confidentiality and related concerns will be discussed. 

This training is REQUIRED for all new, Spring 2023 students. Questions? Email
Dress Casual (jeans ok)
