Promoting Safe and Inclusive Research Environments

Columbia University is committed to providing a learning, living, and working environment free from prohibited discrimination and harassment and to fostering a nurturing and vibrant community founded upon the fundamental dignity and worth of all of its members. Funding agencies also are focusing on the need to promote safe and inclusive research environments. The references and further information below will help the Columbia community stay up-to-date on these agencies' requirements, and the Columbia offices—notably the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA)—that work to prevent and respond to issues involving harassment, and promote safe and inclusive research environments.
