Violence Response

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 managed by the Coordinator for Violence Response and in cooperation and collaboration with the Sexual Assault and Gender Issues Committee (SAGIC). To be directed to a confidential advocate to discuss options for support, please click here to schedule a meeting or call our 24/7 Safeline at 336-278-3333.

FERPA & Parental Notification

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

If students would like the university to be able to openly discuss a student conduct case with a family member, guardian, or other individual, the student may choose to complete the FERPA release that would be necessary for our office to do so.  The FERPA form is available on the registrar’s website.
