In October 2017, Sexual Violence Response (SVR) recognized its 25-year anniversary at Columbia University.

In January 2018, Columbia Housing announced to East Campus residents that the building would be included in the NYC Department of Sanitation's compost program.

In an effort to educate students on the basics and encourage composting, Housing partnered with the student group EcoReps to create this fun how-to video.
In March 2018, Columbia Health launched a redesigned website at health.columbia.edu. The new site provides a clear path to access critical services for the student community and serves as a helpful resource to partners in the schools and departments that support them. Changes to the site design, structure, and content presentation were driven by extensive input from students, as well as school and department staff through a series of online surveys and in-person sessions. The result is a cleaner, modern, and more user-friendly website.
