April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month!
On Monday afternoon, CU Dems Member and Bwog Events Editor Lexie Lehmann attended an open lunch with Marjory Fisher, Columbia’s Title IX Coordinator. The event was hosted in honor of April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Yesterday, Columbia Democrats hosted a public lunch meeting as an opportunity to discuss the resources available to students on Columbia’s campus, as well as to address concerns about how Title IX might change during the Trump administration. As the group nibbled on some gourmet Westside-Italian catering, Ms. Fisher introduced herself as well as her colleagues, Sarah Swan, a representative from Columbia Law School and Jeri Henry, Associate Vice President of Columbia’s Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards. Ms. Fischer explained that before coming to Columbia, she was the Senior Managing Director of the Sexual Misconduct Consulting & Investigations Division at T&M Protection Resources. Before that, she was the Bureau Chief of the Special Victims Bureau in the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
Marjory Fisher began by explaining the history of Title IX, reminding us that it used to be just a protocol regarding sports equity. Under the Obama administration, however, Title IX was reinterpreted to address gender-based discrimination at private and public schools receiving federal funding. Columbia University, for example, receives around 1 billion dollars annually from the federal government. The purpose of the Title IX office, therefore, is to ensure that all complaints of misconduct are addressed through quick and thorough investigations.

On Saturday, Bwog’s Events Editor Lexie Lehmann had the privilege of receiving a backstage pass to cover press for this year’s Bacchanal. What followed was an afternoon of schmoozing and debauchery. If you were anywhere near the stage on Saturday, you probably caught her badly dancing to the right of the stage or attempting to flirt with DJ Almand.
My friends often ask me how I finesse myself into cool opportunities at Columbia and I honestly think it’s just a product of being in the right place at the right time. This time, I happened to be procrastinating my P3 in Avery Library when Bwog’s lovely EIC reached out to me about the chance to cover Bacchanal backstage. Hell yes. In advance of the event, I was told that it wasn’t likely that I would get to actually meet any of the performers, but that didn’t stop me from keeping my hopes up.
The morning of the event, I dragged myself out of bed to get my press credentials from Bacchanal Staff and Public Safety in Low Library. I have to be honest, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. Bwog has had a pretty mixed experience with Bacchanal – from being denied coverage of the event in 2013 due to a “speculative posting of the lineup”, to breaking the story on a Barnard student’s hookup with last year’s headliner – I had some pretty big shoes to fill and I wasn’t quite sure how my own experience would live up to them.
So… what was Lexie’s experience?

Boss ladies in public health.
On Thursday afternoon, Events Editor Lexie Lehmann ventured uptown to Columbia’s Medical School campus to attend the book launch of “Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why?”, written by Chelsea Clinton and Devi Sridhar. At the event, Clinton and Sridhar discussed the governance of leading public health organizations and the process of co-authoring their book.
When I found out that Chelsea Clinton was giving a talk at Columbia on the launch of her new book with Devi Sridhar, I knew it was something I wanted to check out. The event was hosted by Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, where Clinton is an adjunct assistant professor in Health Policy and Management. The introduction for the event was given by Linda Fried, the Dean of the Mailman School. Question and answer were moderated by Michael Sperr, Chair of the Department of Health Policy.
Chelsea Clinton and Devi Sridhar are two incredibly impressive scholars and mothers who have been collaborating on this book for several years. In addition to being an adjunct professor at the Mailman School, Clinton is also the Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation and holds a doctorate of Philosophy from Oxford University in International Relations. In 2015, she published a positive self-help book titled, “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired, and Get Going!” Sridhar also possesses an incredibly impressive resume. After being the youngest person to become a Rhodes Scholar at age 18, Sridhar has gone on to work as a professor in Global Health Politics at Oxford University. She currently serves as Professor and Chair in Global Public Health at the University of Edinburgh Medical School.
Their book, “Governing Global Health”, presents four case studies of the world’s leading public health organizations: the World Bank, the World Health Organization, GAVI Alliance, and the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS. Research was conducted to examine how these four organizations are governed, financed, and held accountable for their decisions. The organizations were also evaluated for transparency and accountability. By comparing and contrasting the governance strategies of each of these organizations through specific lenses, Clinton and Sridhar were able to draw conclusions about the influence and effectiveness of their public health strategies.

This room is so cute it almost helps us feel better about JJs.
Bwog Writer Lexie Lehmann saw a sick snapchat of Hannah Kline (CC ’20)’s beautiful John Jay single and knew that Bwog had to write about it. Read about Hannah’s decor inspiration and see more of this impeccable room below!
What was your inspiration when designing your room?
Color and comfort. I really wanted a room that at the end of a long day I could come back to and really just relax.
What is your favorite part of your room?
I’m rather split between the lavender vanity and my wall of pictures. After I was moved in my mom got the vanity, painted it to match my room and gave it to me as a surprise a week later. It was so sweet and I always think of my family when I sit at it. But I also love my hanging photographs. Like all freshman, I was homesick at the beginning of the year so having pictures of my high school friends was comforting to me. But now I soon plan on adding my Columbia memories to the photo wall!
