Executive Committee on Campus Climate, Health & Safety
The Executive Committee on Campus Climate, Health and Safety (ECCCHS) provides joint academic, student services, human resources and safety services guidance on issues and policy related to these important campus priorities.
The ECCCHS reflects and supports the commitment of Cornell's senior leadership to high level engagement in issues related to the well-being of individuals, groups, and the campus climate at Cornell. Since its inception*, the ECCCHS has considered a range of broad public health issues, including mental health; alcohol and other drugs; sexual violence, harassment, and other misconduct; hazing; student access to health care; gorge safety; emergency planning and response; and occupational medicine.
In addition, the Executive Committee on Campus Climate, Health and Safety guides the work of and receives recommendations from the:
- Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs
- Council on Mental Health and Welfare
- Council on Sexual Violence Prevention
- Council on Hazing Prevention
* The committee was first convened in 2001 as the Executive Committee on Campus Health. In 2008, it was renamed the Executive Committee on Campus Health and Safety to reflect its changes in its scope of attention. In February 2013, the president announced a still broader charge for the group, which is reflected in its current name, Executive Committee on Campus Climate, Health and Safety.
