Columbia College Chicago is committed to maintaining an environment that respects the dignity of our students, faculty and staff and is free from discrimination of any kind. Sexual misconduct (including sexual violence) is a particularly harmful form of discrimination. No person should be subject to any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature or denied equitable access to the College’s education programs based on sex, gender identity or gender stereotypes. In compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Illinois’ Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act, Columbia provides for the prompt and equitable resolution of any allegation of this destructive behavior.
We designed this webpage to serve as a resource on sexual misconduct – included within is information concerning emergency assistance, reporting options, support services, available training, grievance procedures and applicable College policies. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these materials and to reach out with any questions or constructive feedback. This important issue demands our community’s full engagement. An informed and empowered study body provides a powerful deterrent.
Columbia mandates that students, faculty and staff complete an online training module on Title IX and related laws. To complete the module, students, faculty and staff should log in with the usernames and password provided to them via email. To request new login information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The college’s Sexual Assault Awareness Education Committee (SAAEC), a group of students and staff, is responsible for arranging dynamic planning for the student body on the topic of Title IX and sexual assault. The SAAEC wants to hear your voice! For information about how you can get involved in Title IX education and awareness efforts, please email email@example.com.
