Employees at EMU have an important role to play in the prevention, response, and awareness of sexual and relationship violence on campus.


Every member of the campus community has a role to play in preventing sexual and relationship violence on campus. We encourage all EMU employees to attend a 90-minute faculty/staff Green Dot overview. If you are a supervisor or department head, reach out to us about scheduling a faculty/staff overview for your entire staff team or department.

As the campus group that remains the most unchanged from year to year, faculty and staff are the stakeholders that shape the long-term culture of our campus. If we hope to change the norms so that EMU becomes a place where sexual and relationship violence is not tolerated and each person is expected to do their part to prevent it, faculty and staff are the ones who will lead that change.

For more information on how to get involved, contact us at safertogether@emu.edu



EMU faculty and staff have an important role to play in raising awareness about issues related to sexual and relationship violence through the ways you integrate prevention topics into your courses and programming. Whether you’d like:

  • A speaker to come talk to your class about how sexual and relationship violence prevention relates to the field they’re preparing to enter; 
  • Creative internships or practice opportunities for classes or clubs;
  • Guidance on supporting students on the healing journey;
  • Tips on resources and content to integrate into course curriculum; 
  • Or have another creative partnership to propose -- 

We’re here to help. Reach out with questions, ideas, and for additional information to safertogether@emu.edu. Thank you for doing your part to make our campus safer!

Employee-involved sexual violence (Title VII)

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits, among other things, sex-based discrimination, including discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, related medical conditions, or sexual harassment in the workplace carried out by either the institution or other coworkers. 

If you feel you have been discriminated against on the basis of sex, or have additional questions regarding employees’ rights under Title VII, please contact the director of human resources.

In situations of sexual or relationship violence involving both a student and an employee, the director of human resources and the Title IX coordinator will work together to determine how the incident proceeds either concurrently or consecutively through human resources and Title IX processes.
