Addressing Employee Concerns

Employee concerns should be brought to the attention of Arts & Sciences’ Human Resources team (EVP-HR) initially to determine the next course of action. For administrative personnel, employee concerns should be routed to Tanique Dunkley, Davima Broadbelt and Roje Thomas. For academic personnel, contact Joseph Werst ([email protected]) and Pamela Tan ([email protected]).
The following resources may be helpful for addressing employment related issues:

The Ombuds Office offers a safe place for any member of the Columbia community to discuss workplace issues, interpersonal conflict, academic concerns, bureaucratic runarounds, and many other problems. Discussions are kept confidential, and the office is not a part of any formal University process. No sides are taken in disputes and the office operates independently of the Columbia administration, reporting only to the president.

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) has overall responsibility for the management of the University’s Student Policies and Procedures on Discrimination and Harassment and the Employment Policies and Procedures on Discrimination and Harassment.

University policies are listed on the Human Resources website.
