Tulane has an obligation to investigate reports of sexual discrimination on our campus. Two offices share responsibility for investigating and adjudicating reports of sexual misconduct at Tulane:
Office of Student Conduct (OSC)
Office of Institutional Equity (OIE)
Uptown Square 105-A
OSC is responsible for investigating reports where a Tulane student is alleged to have committed an act of sexual or gender-based harassment, sexual assault, stalking, or dating/domestic violence.
OIE is responsible for investigating reports where a Tulane faculty, staff, or a third party person (for example, a private security guard or a Sudexo employee from the dining hall) is alleged to have committed an act of sexual or gender-based harassment, sexual assault, stalking, or dating/domestic violence.
OIE also investigates all allegations of sexual discrimination at Tulane, like discriminatory hiring and firing and wage discrimination.
Contact whomever you feel comfortable reaching out to. We'll make sure you get connected with the appropriate place.
We're just glad you made the first step in reporting.
Students who were drinking under the age of twenty-one or under the influence of drugs when they experienced or witnesses sexual violence might be concerned about reporting what they have experienced or seen because of the fear of "getting in trouble" for the alcohol or drug consumption. Please know that Tulane's Code of Student Conduct grants amnesty in these situations--learn more here.
What is Sexual Misconduct?
Created by Cornell University
Sexual discrimination and harassment are prohibited conducts under the university's "EO Policies," which applies to all members of the community. Faculty and staff who engage in this prohibited behavior will be subject to an investigation conducted by OIE and appropriate disciplinary outcomes. Please read the linked policy to learn more about prohibited sexual harassment and discrimination. You can also learn more by contacting OIE.
