   Sexual and Relationship Violence
Sexual and relationship violence occurs in both women and men, most commonly with known partners. Several resources exist for CUMC students who may have experienced sexual or relationship violence, either recently or in the past.

Sexual Violence Response of Columbia University provides comprehensive and integrated education about sexual and relationship violence. Its mission is to educate students about consent and coercion and promotes community standards for a respectful and safe campus.

Sexual Violence Response empowers students to heal from sexual violence, make informed decisions, and take action to end sexual and relationship violence. Join the mailing list to receive information about events, programs and services.

This program offers hours at CUMC as well as on the Morningside Campus. The CUMC office is located in 101 Bard Hall, 50 Haven Avenue.
  • Hours Fridays, 9:30 am – 1 pm OR by appointment
