Sexual Assault Response Training

During a Title IX presentation, Associate Vice Provost Lynell Cadray, who leads Emory’s Office of Equity and Inclusion, recommended a plan to provide sexual assault training to all Emory faculty and staff, to be implemented over the next three years. The plan would offer guidance, for example, on when and why faculty and staff are required to report sexual misconduct, what steps to take if a student confides that they were a target of sexual assault, and when and how to refer a student for counseling or support services. Faculty council members voted to approve a motion to support mandatory university-wide sexual assault training for all Emory faculty and
staff. Training will be provided to all new faculty and staff hires starting January 2015. Current faculty will be provided an online training module, with classroom trainings to be made available to current staff.
