Statement on Investigation of Possible Misconduct on the Morningside Campus


STATEMENT BY COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY FACILITIES EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT JOE IENUSO ON INVESTIGATION OF POSSIBLE MISCONDUCT ON THE MORNINGSIDE CAMPUS


Every day, the Columbia University Facilities staff works exceptionally hard to support our campus.  We are proud that our employees maintain a standard of performance and conduct that contributes to the continuing excellence and orderly and efficient operation of the University.  We take even the perception of workplace misconduct, in any form, very seriously and take appropriate action if violations occur.

Columbia University Facilities is currently conducting an investigation of potential misconduct in the workplace.  While it would not be appropriate to comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can assure you that the alleged misconduct does not directly involve client-related activities or services.  In the course of this investigation we will work diligently to ensure a fair process and resolve this matter as expeditiously as possible. 

We in Facilities take very seriously our commitment to provide the University community with the highest level of quality and service.  Accordingly, we are putting in place measures to maintain appropriate service levels.  However, should you experience any interruption in service, please contact our Services Center immediately at x4-2222 so we can address the situation quickly and efficiently. 

We look forward to continuing to work with all members of the Columbia community in supporting the core educational and research missions of the University by maintaining a safe, beautiful, and functional campus environment.
