The Nation: Student frustrated by ‘tone and content’ of leaked email from Title IX administrator

The Nation reported on Friday that an anonymous student was frustrated by the “tone and content” of an email mistankenly sent by a Columbia Title IX compliance officer. 

Title IX Compliance Officer Virginia Ryan, BC ’83, mistakenly sent the email on May 5 to the student instead of colleague Michael Dunn, the deputy Title IX coordinator and director of investigations, in response to the student's request for direct input to decision-makers on what information is included in materials, including the survivor rights and resources flowchart.

Ryan’s email, a screenshot of which was published by The Nation, said:

"Wow again. Direct contact with decision makers, not just us? Anything else!?!"

The student then sent an email to Ryan expressing dissatisfaction with Ryan’s email.

“The tone and content of your message suggests that your purpose in collaborating with us is to ‘handle’ us more than than it is to engage with us honestly,” the student wrote. “I think is unlikely that we will be able to successfully address the problems that we’re all trying to address if this tone persists.”

According to The Nation, Ryan apologized to the student by email but has not replied to requests from The Nation for comment.

Spectator has since reached out to Ryan and the University for comment, and we will update once we hear back.

Students,
The comments in this email are conflicting with Title IX Compliance and speaks to the lack of respect for federal anti discrimination laws that safeguard. It also indicates the pattern and practice of the university which trickles down to Ms. Ryan. This email is evidence and should be forwarded to OCR under your complaint docket case # re: supplemental addendum to file, request that it be considered as additional evidence and submitted to your existing case file. You are within a 90 day jurisdictional timeframe. Request an investigation based on "failure to respond and correct a allegedly sexual hostile environment" . State that allegations of sexual discrimination are reflected in this communication, and that you are being treated differently than other students due to gender ("sexual discrimination"). That's your case. Good luck! The federal investigation should open shortly. The evaluative process can be lengthy! Hang in there! I am proud of you! It is imperative that you forward this Ryan email to your Supervising Attorney and Equal Opportunity Senior Investigator at OCR. Also forward to Financial Student Aid, Clery Compliance in D.C. Two concurrent investigations are possible. I am a Columbia community member and Ryan should be terminated from her Title IX role. She has just gotten your case open however.
