Community Citizenship Initiative

Offered by Columbia University Life, the Community Citizenship Initiative (CCI) is an opportunity for students to learn and better understand their part in upholding Columbia's core values of sexual respect and inclusion and belonging.

Columbia launched the Community Citizenship Initiative as a collaboration among students, faculty, and administrators to create a stronger, safer, and better-connected campus community. With these goals in mind, University Life has designed a set of tools and resources for students to learn not only how they can take part in this process, but also to feel empowered to create positive change within our community. These learning materials are broken down into two components: Sexual Respect and Inclusion and Belonging. Participation in both components is required for all new students.
