Students are expected to be aware of and abide by specific policies formulated by Emory University concerning discrimination and harassment. 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.

It is the policy of Emory University that all employees and students should be able to enjoy and work in an educational environment free from discriminatory harassment. Harassment of any person or group of persons on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, handicap, or veteran’s status is a form of discrimination specifically prohibited in the Emory University community. Any employee, student, student organization, or person privileged to work or study in the Emory University community who violates this policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including permanent exclusion from the University. The scholarly, educational, or artistic content of any written, oral, or other presentation or inquiry shall not be limited by this policy. The preceding provision is liberally construed with the intent that academic freedom shall be allowed to all members of the academic community; however, this provision shall not be used as a pretextual basis for violation of the policy.
