Efforts Addressing Gender-Based Violence, Bias, and Harassment

Elon University recognizes the serious and negative impact that acts of interpersonal violence, including sexual violence, have on individuals and the University community. Elon University does not tolerate acts of interpersonal violence, which includes gender-based violence, sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking. To this end, the University has developed a comprehensive intervention, response, and support strategy to address acts of interpersonal violence. These activities are coordinated by the Department of Student Health and Wellness in cooperation and collaboration with the Sexual Assault and Gender Issues Committee (SAGIC). In addition to the multi-pronged efforts to address gender-based violence, Elon’s Office of Inclusive Community Well-Being coordinates efforts to respond to incidents of bias and/or harassment including those around gender, gender identity, and gender expression. If you would like to report an incident of bias and/or harassment you can do so with the Report Bias form, and if you have any questions about the Office of Inclusive Community Well-Being you can contact the Director Leigh-Anne Royster.
