The Coalition Against Sexual Violence (CASV) is made up of student groups and individuals on Columbia’s campus who are dedicated to combating sexual assault and gender-based misconduct within our community. It aims to promote sex positivity and safe practices, educate students on the nature of sexual assault and gender-based misconduct, as well as the complexities of consent, and advocate for legislative change across Columbia University by establishing campus-wide partnerships to host workshops, programs, and wellness events.
CASV was revitalized by Andrew Rodriguez CC’20 (RHLO Director of Advocacy & Policy), Morgan Kang CC’20 (RHLO Associate Director of Advocacy & Policy) in January 2018.
