Student Council

  • Good Samaritan Policy (Responsible Community Action Policy)
    • Tanya helped Logan Donovan in her push to institute a Good Samaritan Alcohol and Drug Use Policy at Columbia University
    • Their work here eventually led to the institution of the Responsible Community at Columbia (RC@C) alcohol education that replaced alchohol.edu as a first-year requirement
  • SEAS Pass/Fail
  • SEAS Honor Code
    • With Robert Ying, Harry Munroe, and graduate students, she helped write and implement a Columbia Engineering honor code
