Sexual Misconduct Policy: Applicability, Jurisdiction & Title IX Coordinator Authority
The Sexual Misconduct Policy and its procedures will apply to all complaints by or against students for Prohibited Conduct. The Policy and the accompanying procedures will also apply to individuals reporting or participating in investigations of such conduct whether made by students, faculty, staff, or third parties, and will take precedence over any other Morehouse College policies and procedures with respect to such complaints. At this time, this policy does not apply to complaints of harassment, discrimination or misconduct between two non-student Morehouse community members. Such complaints should be referred to the Office of Human Resources or Campus Police, as appropriate.
Morehouse designates the Title IX Coordinator (Title IX Coordinator") as the individual charged with coordinating efforts to comply with Title IX. The Title IX Coordinator addresses and oversees the investigation and resolution of all complaints related to sexual and gender-based harassment involving students, faculty, staff, visitors, and vendors, including Sexual Misconduct and Assault, Sexual Harassment, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, or Stalking.
The Title IX Coordinator is available to meet with any person to provide information about resources, interim measures, and options for investigation and resolution under this Sexual Misconduct Policy:
