A message from President Hatch regarding new University policy

A message from President Hatch to students, faculty and staff:

Wake Forest University is firmly committed to providing an academic and working community free from unlawful discrimination and harassment in all forms. Consistent with Wake Forest’s Notice of Non-discrimination and in compliance with federal statutes and recent Department of Education guidance, the University has implemented a revised Faculty and Staff Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy. The revised policy is effective September 1, 2015 and will apply to reports of sexual misconduct, including gender discrimination and sexual harassment, against a University faculty or staff member on the Reynolda campus. The Faculty and Staff Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy includes information about the various forms of sexual misconduct covered under the policy, how to report an incident of sexual misconduct, resolution and appeal procedures and resources available to members of the Wake Forest community.

In the fall, the Title IX Office and Human Resources will hold open forums so faculty, staff and students may receive additional clarification about the policy. For more information or to report a concern regarding sexual misconduct, please contact the University’s Title IX Coordinator, Tanya Jachimiak.

The University will take seriously every allegation or report of sexual misconduct received. This policy and the University’s response are intended to ensure that all parties involved receive appropriate support and fair treatment, and that allegations of sexual misconduct are handled in a prompt, thorough, and equitable manner.  Thank you for your assistance as together we build a stronger community.
