Building a Culture of Respect

Respect @Cornell: Addressing Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment

As part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion, Cornell makes a concerted effort to ensure that our community can identify potential acts of sexual violence and knows who to contact and consult about it. Our aim is to make sure campus remains a safe and respectful academic and workplace environment focused on education.

To help achieve that aim, Cornell has created a brief online program entitled "Respect @Cornell: Addressing Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment" which addresses how to respond should faculty or staff learn a member of our community has experienced any type of sexual violence or stalking. It also lets faculty and staff know how to file a complaint.

Federal law requires all faculty and staff to receive information about sexual assault/violence, domestic violence, dating violence (also known as intimate partner violence), and stalking prevention and response. We hope and expect that all current faculty and staff will take this online course as part of our ongoing education and training mandates, even if they have viewed earlier versions of the "Respect at Cornell" program.
