Columbia's Revised Sexual Assault Policy

Thursday, August 21, 2014

As the fall semester approaches, students returning to classes at Columbia will learn about changes to the way the school handles sexual assault allegations, and how it seeks to prevent sexual violence from happening. Suzanne Goldberg, special adviser to the president on sexual assault prevention and response at Columbia and a Columbia Law School professor, explains what's new, and follows up on some criticism of the new policy from a Columbia student on yesterday's show.

Dr. Jauhar's description of the disillusionment that doctors are experiencing also describes what many teachers are feeling in education. There is a disconnect between the realities of our many years of education and the realities of our diverse schools, we now do a ridulous amount of paperwork, we manage high student loan debt by taking on extra work on the side to make ends meet, and of course the majority of us in education entered the field to make a difference for young learners just as he and the doctors I know wish to improve the health, care, and well-being for patients. It would be a great loss of service to our communities if young capable students turn away from medicine and education due to institutions that are not rationally dealing with the realities of our unique professions.

Isn't it kind of shameful that a "Presidential Class" University even has a rape problem? Maybe they should add a new admissions criteria: Likely to be a serial rapist or not?
