Equal Employment Opportunity and Nondiscrimination Policies
Columbia University is committed to providing a working and learning environment free from unlawful discrimination and harassment and to fostering a nurturing and vibrant community founded upon the fundamental dignity and worth of all of its members. Consistent with this commitment and with applicable laws, it is the policy of the University not to tolerate unlawful discrimination or harassment in any form and to provide students, employees and campus visitors who feel that they are victims of discrimination or harassment with mechanisms for seeking redress. All members of the University community are expected to adhere to the applicable policies and to cooperate with the procedures for responding to complaints of discrimination and harassment. All are encouraged to report any conduct believed to be in violation of these policies. The University's Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) has overall responsibility for the management of the University's Equal Opportunity and Nondiscrimination Policies and has been designated to coordinate compliance activities under these policies and applicable federal, state and local laws.
Columbia's expectation is that the program participants uphold and adhere to such policies during the course of their program.
