ESC Statement on Wrestling Team

CW: Sexism, Racism, Misogyny, Homophobia

In light of recent events regarding the statements said in a forum by several senior members of the Columbia Men’s Wrestling Team, the Engineering Student Council stands with the communities that feel victimized, silenced, wronged, and unsafe. We stand with the survivors of sexual assault and the victims of racism, misogyny, sexism and homophobia . We will provide support in any way possible. No student should feel unsafe at any time on this campus, and we are acutely aware that the aforementioned statements force students to question the foundations on which their whole community is based.

Furthermore, we urge the engineering student population to consider that rooting out intolerance is a continuous effort. We encourage student leaders to foster communities within our larger Columbia community that do not allow hatred and intolerance to remain on campus. It can be difficult to step up as a bystander, and there are often very legitimate reasons not to do so. If you find yourself in a position to speak or act against behavior that goes against our community standards, we encourage you to feel empowered to do so.

Students who need assistance are also welcome to reach out to any member of council and are also encouraged to make use of these undergraduate resources on campus:

ESC Statement on Election

CW: Election

As representatives of a diverse student body, we recognize the unrest that the current American political situation has generated within the Columbia community. Therefore, it has been our priority to provide unconditional support to every member of our community. As a way to provide immediate support, council reached out to faculty and administrators in order to care for the mental and emotional well being of those who are affected. Going forward, we will continue to be a resource to any student who needs it. The members of our Engineering Student Council will not tolerate hate, in either action or speech. We will intervene, not solely as bystanders, but as devoted, passionate members of this Columbia community, to ensure our community is a welcoming place for all members of our diverse and vibrant student body.

Hi everyone!

As your Engineering Student Council, our goal is to make the world a better place by empowering and enabling our engineers to fix the problems that they care about most.  We’re looking forward to working with you throughout your time here at Columbia.

We’ll be updating the members pages with more information soon, as well as creating an area where we will publish our survey results. In the weeks to come, we’ll also be creating a better disabilities information page, and we’ve got a blog series planned for engineering student groups on campus.

Feel free to email esc@columbia.edu with any questions or concerns, or drop us a suggestion in our suggestion box when it comes online!

Sincerely,

The Members of Engineering Student Council
