Who Can I Talk To?
Mercer University responds to reports of sexual misconduct and relationship violence with dignity, care, and respect. Any individual impacted by sexual misconduct and relationship violence, whether as a victim/survivor, complainant, or third party, will have access to support and resources. The University will proceed in a way that seeks to honor the rights and privacy of those involved.
You may want to talk with a counselor or a campus minister who is a confidential resource and will not share identifying information about you without your written consent.
Responsible Employees, Not Confidential
Conversations are kept as private as possible, but information about incidents of sexual misconduct and relationship violence must be shared with relevant administrators and the Title IX Coordinator so that the University can ensure the safety of the campus community. Below are a list of resources that will maintain the privacy of an individual and only share information on a “need to know” basis.
- Title IX Coordinator
- Dean of Students Office
- Associate Vice President for Human Resources
- Mercer Police
- Residence Life Staff
- Student Health Center
- All Faculty and Staff Members
