Title IX

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT POLICY: POLICY LANGUAGE

Students who engage in Prohibited Conduct are subject to disciplinary action up to and including permanent separation from the College (i.e. expulsion). Students  are  also subject to disciplinary action for Aiding,  Abetting,  or  Inciting  any  of  these  forms  of misconduct.

Bystanders. A Bystander is anyone who observes an emergency or any situation where someone is in need of help. Bystanders play a critical role in the prevention of sexual and relationship violence. Morehouse College promotes a culture of community accountability where bystanders are actively engaged in the  prevention of violence without  causing harm to themselves or others.

Further, any Retaliation against an individual who has complained  about  sexual harassment or unlawful discrimination, or retaliation against individuals for cooperating  with an investigation of a complaint of sexual harassment or unlawful discrimination, is similarly  unlawful and will not be tolerated.

The Sexual Misconduct Policy and its procedures do not replace the  criminal  justice system. In the event that an individual files a report with Campus Police, the Morehouse College Police Department will report to the Atlanta Police Department certain alleged crimes, including some forms of Sexual Harassment, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, or Stalking, which occur in Atlanta, Fulton County and constitute a felony under Georgia law.

The Sexual Misconduct Procedures can be found in the Sexual Misconduct Procedures document, which will continually be published on the College‚Äôs intranet, as well  as external website.
