Students are expected to be aware of and abide by specific policies formulated by Emory University concerning sexual assault. What follows is a brief summary; the full statements of these policies, as well as those of other University policies, are published annually in the Campus Life Handbook.

The Emory University community expects all of its members to treat other persons with respect and dignity and will not tolerate any form of sexual assault. Sexual activity should be explicitly agreed upon by all parties. The University shall proceed with disciplinary and/or remedial actions as needed when it appears that the University’s prohibition against any form of sexual abuse has been violated. A student charged with sexual assault may be disciplined under the University’s code of student conduct as well as prosecuted under Georgia’s criminal statutes. The University also has in place procedures to provide emotional and medical support to a victim of sexual assault within the Emory community.
