Message from the President

Dear Mercer Community:

With national data suggesting that more men and women across the country are experiencing sexual violence than formal reports indicate, colleges and universities have a responsibility to do more to prevent sexual misconduct and relationship violence.  As President of Mercer University, I want us to explore every available avenue to make our campuses as safe as possible for all our students and employees. I fully expect Mercer to be at the forefront of awareness and prevention programming and hope that this website will provide the community with essential information on reporting, prevention, and policies associated with sexual misconduct and relationship violence. Ensuring that Mercer continues to be a place where every individual is respected is the responsibility of every member of our community. I ask that you familiarize yourself with the information on this website and assist us in educating students and employees about Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence.  


William D. Underwood
President, Mercer University
