As Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Discrimination may, in some instances, constitute a violation of University policy and constitute criminal activity, the University encourages individuals to report alleged Prohibited Conduct promptly to campus officials and to law enforcement authorities, where appropriate.

Individuals may file a report at any time, but the University strongly encourages individuals to file complaints promptly in order to preserve evidence for a potential legal and/or grievance process.

Confidential Communications

The University understands that a Complainant may wish to discuss an incident of Prohibited Conduct in a confidential manner with a resource who is not required to report the incident to the Department of Title IX. There are five (5) resources at the University’s Atlanta campus and at the Oxford campus with whom communications are confidential and, in some cases, privileged.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) - Atlanta Campus / Counseling and Career Services (CCS) – Oxford Campus: Both CAPS and CCS offer professional, licensed counselors who provide mental health counseling to students.

Office of Spiritual and Religious Life – Atlanta and Oxford Campuses: These Offices have chaplains and clergy members who provide pastoral counseling in their professional roles.

Student Health Services (SHS) – Atlanta and Oxford Campuses: A disclosure may be made to healthcare providers in their caregiving roles.

Emory Ombuds Office - Atlanta and Oxford Campuses: The Ombuds Office is a confidential resource for faculty, staff, and students.

Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP): A disclosure may be made to a licensed mental health professional within FSAP.

Please Note: In limited circumstances, these privileged and confidential resources may have reporting or other obligations under state law and may have an obligation to follow moral and ethical guidelines. These reporting or other obligations may limit the extent to which the professional counselor may maintain a Complainant’s confidentiality.

 

Nicole Babcock, the University Title IX Coordinator, monitors the responsive action taken, as appropriate, to remedy the effects of sexual misconduct on the complainant. This may include commencement of disciplinary proceedings against the respondent.

Both parties shall have the right to appeal.

A variety of support services and resources are available to students. Please consult this list of related offices for more information.
