Emory University strives to be a community free of sexual misconduct by promoting the essential values of respect and responsibility, providing education, and working with students, faculty, and staff to provide a community that is safe and supportive for all. Emory takes all complaints and accusations of sexual misconduct seriously.
Any member of the university community can file a report of sexual misconduct, and the university strongly urges any community member impacted by sexual misconduct to file a report. By reporting you make the university aware of the behavior so that prompt action can be taken to address the situation. The university will take seriously every allegation or report of sexual misconduct received. The university’s response is intended to ensure that all parties involved receive appropriate support and fair treatment, and that allegations of sexual misconduct are handled in a prompt, thorough, and equitable manner.
Students wishing to file a report can contact the Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Students, the Respect Program, the Emory Police Department, the Center for Women, or any of the Deputy Title IX Coordinators.
The Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Students can assist students who want to request informal remedies (issuing no contact orders, class reassignments, housing relocations, safety planning, etc.) or who wish to bring a formal complaint for disciplinary action against a student.
The Respect Program (404.727.1514) engages the Emory community to prevent and respond to sexual assault and relationship violence. The Respect Program provides confidential consultations to help survivors of sexual violence as they take steps to heal.
The Emory Police Department (404.727.6111) can assist students who wish to file a police report regarding an act of sexual misconduct that took place on campus. The police can investigate acts of sexual misconduct to determine if sufficient evidence exists to file criminal charges.
The Center for Women helps Emory University provide the best possible environment for women as students, scholars and employees. The Center advocates for gender equity throughout the University; provide resources and skill-building opportunities; and bring faculty, students, practitioners, activists, and other learners together to examine gender issues and work toward ethical solutions.
