Amnesty for Reporting Sexual Violence &

Participating in Investigations

Tulane has a vested interest in encouraging its community members to report incidents of sexual and gender-based misconduct that they have experienced, directly witnessed, or have knowledge of to ensure that victims receive the support they need and the community can respond to this behavior. 

To this end, the University offers amnesty to reporting parties, witnesses, and other individuals who may be hesitant to report or share information because of a fear that they themselves may be accused of minor policy violations, like underage drinking or drug use, that occurred at the time of the incident. No conduct proceedings or conduct record will result from a student’s disclosure of such information, though educational options around drug and alcohol use may be explored.
