Enough Is Enough: Combating Sexual Misconduct

Every CUNY campus has specialists trained to help prevent and address sexual misconduct, just part of the important role CUNY has under the new “Enough is Enough” law enacted by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Each campus also has a site Web page providing instructional videos, contact for help and assistance and more.  You can find information on topics such as reporting an incident, confidentiality, getting medical care and emotional support, and ways to support someone who has experienced sexual harassment.
