Admissions & Aid
Every member of the Brooklyn College community, including students, employees, and visitors, deserves the opportunity to live, learn, and work free from sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, and sexual violence.
Sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature—such as unwelcome advances and requests for sexual favors. Gender-based harassment is unwelcome conduct of a nonsexual nature based on an individual’s actual or perceived gender, including conduct based on gender identity, gender expression, or nonconformity with gender stereotypes. Sexual violence is rape or attempted rape, forcible touching, or sexual abuse.
Brooklyn College encourages individuals who have experienced sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, or sexual violence to report the incident(s) to campus authorities, even if they have reported it to outside law enforcement and regardless of whether the incident(s) occurred on campus. Investigations of sexual harassment are conducted fairly, promptly, thoroughly, and as confidently as possible under the circumstances. After the investigation, if a complaint is found to be true, appropriate action can include formal disciplinary action, including termination of employment, and suspension or expulsion of students. The college may also be able to provide victims of sexual harassment with special accommodations to help them make it through their class or work assignments.
Call the Office of Public Safety (718.951.5511) or 911. (You can dial 911 on any college phone and be automatically connected to the Office of Campus and Community Safety Services.) The Office of Public Safety will inform the Title IX coordinator about any incident involving discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence, dating violence, or voyeurism.
Call 911 or go to the local NYPD precinct. Contacting the police does not require you to file charges.
We also encourage you to contact the Title IX coordinator, Michelle Vargas.
