CUNY Policy on Sexual Misconduct

March 16, 2018 10:56 am

I write to underscore CSI’s commitment to preventing sexual harassment and sexual violence for all of our community members. This behavior will not be tolerated.

Your safety and well-being is the College’s highest priority. We continue to offer support and guidance to those who may experience sexual harassment or sexual violence (which includes dating, domestic, and intimate partner violence, as well as stalking/cyberstalking) whether it occurs on- or off-campus.  CUNY’s Policy on Sexual Misconduct outlines the resources that are available to anyone who experiences such violence, and I encourage everyone to read it.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Catherine Ferrara, Esq. to the CSI community as our new Deputy Title IX Coordinator and Diversity Program Manager.  She will be working with the CSI community on these matters. Prior to joining CSI, Catherine represented clients in complex civil litigation matters in federal and state courts throughout the United States. Catherine has significant experience in the investigation and mediation of highly confidential and sensitive matters. She can be reached by phone: 718.982.2250 and by email:

Sexual misconduct is extremely serious and not always easy to talk about. We must work together to prevent sexual violence and ensure a safer campus. If you experience or observe sexual harassment or sexual violence, please contact Catherine Ferrara and/or any of the College officials listed below:

  • Danielle Dimitrov, Title IX Coordinator/Chief Diversity Officer; 718.982.2250; Building 1A, Room 205


  • Michael Lederhandler, Director of Public Safety; 718.982.2111; Building 2A, Room 108


  • Jennifer Borrero, Vice President for Student and Enrollment Services; 718.982.2335, Building 1A, Room 301


  • For a confidential consultation, students may contact The Counseling Center; 718.982.2391; after hours 855.582.6069; Building 1A, Room 109


Employees may also contact:

  • Jessica Collura, Director of Employee Relations and Labor Designee, Human Resources; 718.982.2379; Building 1A, Room 201


We also encourage you to report all cases involving any form of sexual violence and/or stalking to the NYPD – or call 911 in a case of immediate danger.
