Dear Coaches, we wanted to make sure you had this information concerning Title IX reporting on Emory's campus. Please make sure your students are aware of our policies, as well.  Best, BFHS Staff


Emory University is committed to maintaining an environment that is free of unlawful harassment and does not discriminate on the basis of sex within its educational programs and activities. Thus, in accordance with federal law and its commitment to a fair and open campus environment, Emory cannot and will not tolerate discrimination against or harassment of any individual or group based upon race, sex, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, genetic information, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran's status, or any factor that is a prohibited consideration under applicable law. The university recognizes its responsibility to increase awareness of sex discrimination, prevent its occurrence, and diligently investigate reports of misconduct.

Emory University policy adhering to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 requires Barkley Forum representatives to report to our Title IX office any allegation of gender-based harassment or any other discrimination or harassment that is covered in Title IX made by a student or adult attending the Barkley Forum for High Schools.  All members of the Emory University community are mandated to promptly report incidents of sexual harassment and discrimination to the University Title IX Coordinator, the Title IX Coordinator for Students, a Deputy Title IX Coordinator, or other mandatory reporters in order to adhere to the university's Title IX process. Each tab room has an Emory University employee with mandatory reporting responsibilities as its director.

These are the steps we will take if a guest on our campus makes an allegation:


1.     Identify to the person making the allegation that we are mandatory reporters and will be making a report to the Title IX office.


2.     Give the person making the allegation the “What You Need to Know” brochure from Emory University’s Title IX office, which is available here.


3.     Ask the person making the allegation:


a.     Would you like to talk to someone confidentially?


b.     Would you like our assistance in reporting to the police?


c.     Would you like to seek protective and remedial remedies?

If the person making the allegation would like to seek preventative remedies, the Barkley Forum will implement whatever protective and remedial measures are decided upon by the Title IX office.  Should you wish to learn more about Emory’s Title IX office and their role on campus, please visit
