Complaint forms should be sent to one of the GC Title IX Officials or Title IX Coordinators, listed below (center column).



The Graduate Center seeks to create and maintain a safe environment in which all members of our campus community —students, faculty, and staff—can learn and work free from fear of sexual assault and other forms of violence. The City University of New York and The Graduate Center prohibit gender-based harassment of any kind, by students, faculty, and staff. Harassment is unwelcome conduct that may include sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Harassing conduct, also implicated by sexual assault, domestic and intimate partner violence, or stalking on any CUNY campus, creates a “hostile environment” which, when sufficiently severe or pervasive, may limit or interfere with a student’s ability to participate in educational activities, or an employee’s ability to perform his or her job.

Reporting Issues

Contact one of The Graduate Center Title IX officials or Title IX Coordinator at the CUNY campuses, listed below, immediately if you experience or observe any of the following at The Graduate Center (or on any CUNY campus):

  • ● sexual assault or violence (if you are the recent victim of sexual assault, click here);
  • ● unwelcome sexual advances;
  • ● requests for sexual favors;
  • ● other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature;
  • ● harassing conduct due to gender, gender identity, or gender orientation;
  • ● dating or domestic violence;
  • ● physical, cyber, or electronic stalking; and/or
  • ● unwanted physical conduct of any sort;

The Graduate Center will initiate an investigation and take prompt steps to end the harassment.
