SECTION I:  PREPARATION OF THIS REPORT

Emory University's Annual Security Report and Statement of Campus Security Policy (the "Report") is prepared, published and distributed in accordance with the requirements of the Campus Security Act of 1990, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, and all implementing regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Education (34 C.F.R. Part 668; hereinafter collectively the "Regulations").

A.  POLICIES FOLLOWED IN PREPARING THE UNIVERSITY'S ANNUAL SECURITY REPORT

Each year, personnel from the Emory Police Department (EPD), the Office of the General Counsel and the University Communications Office collect and compile, for all campuses, the statistics, information and other data required for this Report, in accordance with the latest statutory and regulatory requirements.

EPD maintains a daily crime log and an incident report database on an annual basis. EPD records, by date, crimes reported to EPD that occurred on "campus," in a "noncampus building or property," on "public property," or within EPD's patrol jurisdiction. It is important to note that under the Regulations, each of the foregoing italicized terms has a special definition that requires the reporting of statistics for certain crimes that occur outside the specific geographic boundaries of the campus property owned by Emory University.

As required by law, EPD determines which crime classification to assign to a reported incident by using the definitions of crimes found in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Guidelines (UCR). EPD also makes the determination as to whether or not a particular crime can be classified as a "hate crime" by using the UCR's definition of that term.

EPD compiles its crime statistics based not only on information that it receives directly, but also from crimes reported to the following sources on or near all Emory campuses: (a) other "campus security authorities" (as that term is defined in the Regulations), including campus security officers, Residence Life personnel, and Campus Life personnel; and (b) crimes reported to local police authorities. Reports of crimes made to persons or agencies outside EPD are solicited by written request from EPD. A formal police report of a crime is not necessary for the crime report to be included in the statistical compilation. Crime victims' names are not disclosed in the statistical report.

The statistics and any additions or changes to policy or informational statements are complied into a draft Report by the EPD and the Office of General Counsel. The Chief of Police serves as the Campus Security Survey Administrator and submits the annual Report to the Department of Education. The Vice President of Communications Office notifies all students and employees by email of the posting of the Report on the Internet.

SECTION III: SECURITY POLICIES AND INFORMATION APPLICABLE TO ALL CAMPUSES

A. POLICY ENCOURAGING THE REPORTING OF CRIMES

Emory strongly and actively encourages all of its students, faculty and employees to report crimes and any suspicious activity to the EPD, campus security personnel or local police authorities and to cooperate with those authorities in their law enforcement activities.

B. CONFIDENTIAL REPORTING OF CRIMES

A student at his or her option may confidentially report a crime to a Residence Life or Campus Life staff member, or to a staff member of the Office of the Dean of any School, Department or Division. The student will be encouraged to make an official police report, but if he/she is not willing to do so, then only the fact that an incident occurred and details sufficient to enable appropriate classification of the incident will be disclosed to EPD, so that incident can be included in the statistical section of this Report.

If a report of a crime is made to a "pastoral counselor" or "professional counselor" as those terms are defined in the Regulations, then, at the student's request, no report will be made of the crime to EPD. Such counselors, however, may in their professional discretion encourage a student to file an official police report or to permit disclosure of the occurrence to EPD for inclusion in the statistical section of this Report.

C. ALCOHOL POLICY

At all of its campuses, Emory University abides by and enforces all state and local laws, regulations and ordinances regarding the possession, consumption, sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages.

The legal drinking age in Georgia is 21 years of age. Any student or employee under the age of 21 who purchases or knowingly possesses an alcoholic beverage is in violation of state law and University policy. Similarly any person who furnishes an alcoholic beverage to a person under 21 years of age is also in violation.

Alcohol is not permitted in the common areas of residence halls at the University's main campus, and Campus Life prescribes a number of additional rules, regulations and requirements by which students and University organizations must abide with regard to the serving of alcohol at various events.

At the University's Oxford College Campus students are prohibited from on-campus possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages, due to the fact that the vast majority of Oxford College students are underage.

All students, faculty and employees of the University at all of its campuses must abide by the requirements of the "Emory University Alcohol and Drug Abuse Policy for Faculty, Staff and Students," which is set forth in this Report.

 

D. ILLEGAL DRUG POLICY

The unlawful manufacturing, distributing, dispensing, possessing or using of a controlled substance is strictly prohibited at Emory University. Any students, staff, faculty or other members of the Emory University community who manufacture, distribute, dispense, possess or use controlled substances may be referred for prosecution according to state and or federal law, as well as referral for University disciplinary sanctions.

As a recipient of federal grants and contracts, Emory University adheres to the provisions of the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (as amended) and any applicable regulations issued pursuant thereto.

E. SEXUAL ASSAULT POLICY

Emory University has a Sexual Assault Policy Statement that applies to all students of the University. This Policy is published annually in handbooks that are provided to each student.

2) Post Report Procedures

Once an alleged assault has been reported to the University, the appropriate campus police and/or local police authorities may be notified. If a student does not initially report the alleged assault to a law enforcement agency, the student should be aware that the option to report the occurrence to either the appropriate campus police or local police authorities exists, and upon request by the student, the University, through EPD, will provide assistance in doing so.

The victim of an alleged sexual assault should take care to preserve any evidence that may be necessary to prove the occurrence of the alleged criminal assault. In this respect, after an alleged assault has occurred, victims are advised to consult law enforcement authorities before showering/bathing or changing or laundering any clothing that was worn during the assault.

In order to accommodate the victim of a sex offense, the University may provide for certain changes in the victim's academic and living situation. With respect to the victim's academic schedule, the University may permit the victim to withdraw from courses, grant an incomplete in a course with arrangements to complete the coursework at a later time; and with the consent of the course instructor, rearrange coursework deadlines and exam times.

The University will permit the victim of an alleged sexual assault to make certain changes to the victim's living arrangements, including the following: cancel housing contract; arrange for alternate on-campus housing; arrange to live with family at home; require an alleged assailant to move to alternate housing until the case is resolved; bar an alleged assailant from entering a victim's residence hall; have a tap installed on telephone line; or arrange for an escort to classes.

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 assault has been violated. A student charged with sexual assault may be disciplined under the applicable University Code of Conduct as well as prosecuted under Georgia's criminal statutes. Whether or not a criminal prosecution occurs, the University retains the right to proceed with disciplinary action at any time, and the University need not await the disposition of any criminal prosecution. University disciplinary action shall be handled in accordance with the Code of Conduct of the accused student's School or College of Emory University. Under these proceedings, the accuser and the accused shall be informed of the outcome of any campus disciplinary proceeding brought alleging a sexual assault (the term "outcome" meaning only the University's "final determination with respect to the alleged sex offense and any sanction that it imposes against the accused"). Sanctions that the University may impose following a final determination of a Code of Conduct violation include the following: written warnings; University and/or residence hall probation; loss of privileges; restitution; discretionary sanctions, such as work assignments or service to the University or community; or expulsion from the University. The sanction of residence hall suspension, University suspension and/or expulsion are entered permanently on a student's record; probation is entered on a student's record for the term of the probation.

The University conducts various educational programs to make both students and employees aware of and to attempt to minimize incidents of rape, acquaintance rape and other forcible and non-forcible sex offenses. The University has a Sexual Assault Prevention Education and Response program whose current Coordinator is Aline Rafi (Telephone No. (404)727-1514).  The following are some of the programs conducted by the University for these purposes: Safe Campus Awareness Month Observances; Residence Hall Director and Advisor Orientation; Freshman  Health Seminars on Sexual Assault; Safety and Security Programs upon request; Sexual Assault Awareness Programs conducted throughout the year; Self-Defense and Assault Avoidance for Women Programs; Alcohol Awareness Programs; generalized safety and security programs conducted in residence halls; fraternity and sorority residence house programs; Personal Protection Programs; and Rape awareness and response programs including “Take Back the Night Observances”  co-sponsored by student organizations (includes participation on the University campus and with local law enforcement and the DeKalb County District Attorney Office). In addition, the University has partnered with the DeKalb County District Attorney to improve county wide sexual assault protocols with regard to the general response, investigation, interviews, and arrests, evidence collection and preservation, resource referral and counseling support, prosecution, pre-trial, trial and post-trial support, and probation and parole.

Overview

Emory University is committed to the health and well-being of its faculty, staff, and student body. Alcohol and drug misuse and abuse can be detrimental to one’s overall physical and emotional health, as well as academic and/or professional performance.  As such, the University believes that it is the ethical responsibility of the University and its members to protect each other from high-risk and excessive use of alcohol and other drugs and to assist individuals who may have substance abuse problems in securing appropriate assistance.

As part of this commitment, Emory University complies with and upholds all federal, state, and local laws that regulate or prohibit the possession, use or distribution of alcoholic beverages or illicit drugs. Violations of such laws that come to the attention of University officials may be addressed within the University or through prosecution in the courts, or both. 

As a recipient of federal grants and contracts, Emory University adheres to the provisions of the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989. As administrator of certain state-funded financial aid programs for students, Emory University also adheres to Georgia’s Drug-Free Postsecondary Education Act of 1990. 

This Policy is also designed to convey the University’s care and concern for its members and their well-being, given that alcohol and other drug use on college campuses is a major public health concern, and to foster faculty, staff, and students helping one another.

Applicability

All Emory University full-time, part-time and temporary faculty, staff, and students are hereby notified that this Policy will apply to all activities conducted on University-owned property and to all other University-sponsored events.  This Policy is distributed annually to all Emory University faculty, staff, and students.

Emory University permits the purchase and use of alcoholic beverages with University funds under certain conditions but expects individuals and organizations to take measures to prevent alcohol and substance abuse. The University expects that individuals and organizations will take responsibility for complying with the Policy as outlined.

Specific offices have been designated to provide clarification about the procedures and guidelines for event planning, as well as services and resources available to faculty, staff and students for reducing at-risk behaviors related to alcohol and drug use.  The contact information for, and responsibility of, each of these offices is listed in Section XI below.

Additional Information

Resources for Education, Consultation and Counseling

The scope and impact of health risks from alcohol and drug misuse and abuse are extensive and well documented, ranging from mood-altering to life-threatening, with consequences that extend beyond the individual to classmates, co-workers, family, friends, organizations and society at large. The University, therefore, conducts regular programs to educate its faculty, staff, and students that the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other drugs alters behavior, distorts perception, impairs thinking, impedes judgment and sabotages opportunity. Alcohol and drug abuse also may result in deterioration of physical health by causing or contributing to various diseases, illnesses, birth defects and even death. In addition, substance use negatively impacts health and wellness.  Please see the Related Links section below for Drugs of Abuse – Uses & Effects, for additional information.

The University sponsors several programs that provide information and professional services for its faculty, staff and students on matters related to the misuse and abuse of alcohol and drugs.  These programs provide education, consultation, assessment, counseling and referral in a professional environment that respects individual confidentiality and integrity. The University maintains the Faculty Staff Assistance Program for faculty and staff; the University Counseling Center for students; the Student Health Service for students; and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences for faculty, staff and students. Augmenting these formal programs, a variety of other campus programs and services educate and assist individuals who take the initiative to help themselves. Please see Attachments and Forms for additional information on these services. 

Common to all of these programs is the ethic that personal responsibility and professional guidance are keys to success. Therefore, the University expects its faculty, staff, and students to take measures to prevent alcohol and drug misuse and abuse in the community by creating a culture that supports mentoring and protecting one another from high risk use of alcohol and other drugs. The University also encourages its members to seek assistance from the above programs if they think that they may have a problem with alcohol or drug use.


Distribution

This Policy, and any revisions thereto, shall be distributed to all faculty, staff, and students annually. Other applicable policies that have reference to this Policy are found in the Campus Life Handbook, the Faculty Handbook, the Staff Handbook, the Human Resources Handbook and Policies and Procedures Manual, the Student Conduct Code, the Medical School Bulletin and the Medical Student Handbook and Academic Planner.

Additional Policies Regarding Alcohol

All student organizations chartered by the Student Government Association are under the jurisdiction of the Student Government Association and its policies and the policies of the Center for Student Leadership and Engagement.
