University Statement On Title IX Filing

Written by

Not here, not anywhere

The following University statement was sent out, noting that Columbia cannot comment on the allegations of the Title IX complaint because they have not yet seen it. It also states that Columbia is working to improve the current system, which will continue even in the face of the Title IX, Title II, and Clery complaints filed. Read it below the jump, emphasis ours:

Sexual assault and gender misconduct are unacceptable, including on college and university campuses. We have been working with students, faculty and staff to make that emphatically clear on our campus and have already taken the first of a series of significant new measures dedicated to preventing such sexual misconduct, supporting survivors, and improving adjudication of these painful cases. That process of action and reform will continue in the months ahead because we are committed to protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of every member of our university community. We’ve been told a complaint has been filed, but we have not seen it, and are not able to comment on its allegations.

  1. Congrats

    You made jezebel. All initial credibility they had- gone. Columbia is going to crush this. Big smoke - no fire.

  2. Why  

    can a student get kicked off campus for academic dishonesty but rapists and serial sexual assaulters are allowed to remain...? Just wondering.

    Have I taught my heavenly jewel
    Teaching sleep most fair to be?
    Now will I teach her that she,
    When she wakes, is too too cruel.

    Since sweet sleep her eyes hath charmed,
    The two only darts of love:
    Now will I with that boy prove
    Some play, while he is disarmed.

    Her tongue waking still refuseth,
    Giving frankly niggard "no";
    Now will I attempt to know
    What "no" her tongue sleeping useth.

    See, the hand which, waking, guardeth,
    Sleeping, grants a free resort;
    Now will I invade the fort;
    Cowards love with loss rewardeth.

    But, O fool, think of the danger
    Of her just and high disdain;
    Now will I, alas, refrain;
    Love fears nothing else but anger.

    Yet those lips so sweetly swelling
    Do invite a stealing kiss;
    Now will I but venture this:
    Who will read, must first learn spelling.

    O sweet kiss -- but ah, she is waking,
    Lowering beauty chastens me;
    Now will I away hence flee;
    Fool, more fool, for no more taking.

    This is absolutely disgusting. How dare you post a piece romanticizing sexual violence, while these victims are here fighting serious trauma and asking for help.

    Bwog, this comment should be removed immediately. It is extremely offensive and inappropriate.

      By all means, and let's burn some books while we're at it. God forbid that Columbia students might be exposed to some historical ideas that might upset them.

      Just stop. It's people like you that make social justice into some stupid caricature of a sniveling, over-sensitive, irrational progressive bullshit, that causes most people to roll their eyes at the masturbatory indignation of it all.

      I mean look at what you fucking wrote. Are you serious?

      And it's a shame because this is a great accomplishment with real impact.
