Cornell University prohibits its faculty, staff, and students from engaging in any form of prohibited discrimination or protected-status (including sexual) harassment, and expects these individuals to refrain from committing acts of bias within the university’s jurisdiction. In compliance with applicable federal, state, and local legislation, the university maintains processes to provide redress and remediation to individuals who believe they have been the victims of these acts, including the identification of Title IX coordinators, who oversee all Title IX complaints and take steps to identify and address any patterns or systemic problems that arise during the review of such complaints. Members of the university community who have relevant information must cooperate with the university’s investigations into prohibited discrimination, protected-status harassment, or bias activity.
Note: With the exception of student employees, complaints brought against students may be covered under the "Campus Code of Conduct" and must be directed to the judicial administrator. Complaints by faculty of unlawful discrimination relating to reappointment, promotion, and tenure are covered in the "Faculty Handbook."
All units of the university. The Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City administers its own procedures, covering related Contacts, Definitions, and Responsibilities.
