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’s intranet, as well as external website.
