Emory Report | Oct. 4, 2016

Emory has released its 2016 Annual Security Report, Annual Fire Safety Report and Statement of Campus Security, which contains important crime statistics from 2013-2015 for all of Emory's campuses.

In addition to Emory's crime statistics, the documents include information pertaining to security policies, sexual misconduct policies, alcohol/drug and other policies, fire statistics, fire safety and a comprehensive description of resources available to assist the campus community.

Emory publishes the report annually in accordance with the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, and the Higher Education Opportunity Act. It is available online, and was distributed Sept. 30 to the entire Emory community via an emailed letter from Lynell Cadray, associate vice provost and University Title IX coordinator for Emory.

The letter also sought to remind the campus community of resources available to those who have experienced sexual violence, sexual misconduct or sexual harassment as defined in Emory University Policy 1.3, Equal Opportunity and Discriminatory Harassment Policy and Policy 8.2, Sexual Misconduct Policy

Resources for support and reporting are outlined in the What to Know section of Emory's Sexual Misconduct Resources website.

"Each of you is asked to take an active role in the essential work of creating and maintaining a campus free of discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct," Cadray wrote. "Sexual violence, sexual misconduct and sexual harassment at Emory impact the entire community and can undermine the core values we set so highly for ourselves."
