Incidents of sexual harassment involving students, faculty, staff, or associated parties should be reported immediately to the University, police, or both.
Victims of sexual assault should seek immediate medical attention. The county and city provide resources for victims of sexual assault via the 911 emergency system and Day League, 24-hour hotline: (404) 377-1428. Northside Hospital is located within 5 miles of the University at 1000 Johnson Ferry Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30342 and is equipped to administer DNA exams.
The University strongly encourages students to report all crimes to the Brookhaven Police Department. Filing a police report will provide legal documentation in the event of a future offense by the same person, or if the decision is made to prosecute in the future. Filing a police report is distinct from making a complaint through the University’s grievance process. The University provides all students with resources and procedures located on the Oglethorpe website that contains information about policy, next steps, and resources.
