Obtaining Information, Assistance and Support; Reporting Options
If you have experienced sexual or gender-based violence or harassment, there are multiple channels for obtaining information, assistance, and support to ensure your health and safety, both physical and emotional. There are also a number of ways to report the incident should you desire to do so. The resource sheet linked in the navigation menu to your left is intended to provide an overview of your options.
The term “sexual or gender-based violence” is used here as an umbrella term to refer to all prohibited conduct as defined in Emory University’s Equal Opportunity and Discriminatory Harassment Policy 1.3, http://policies.emory.edu/1.3 and Sexual Misconduct Policy 8.2, http://policies.emory.edu/8.2. Prohibited conduct includes sexual assault (including non-consensual sexual contact or non-consensual sexual intercourse, or attempts to commit either), sexual exploitation, dating violence, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, gender-based harassment, and retaliation against any person for making a good faith report of prohibited conduct or for participating in any proceedings under these policies. Detailed definitions of these and other key terms, including “consent” and “incapacitation” are set forth in the policies.
