Combating harassment

UGA will hire three ombudsmen and an attorney to handle sexual harassment complaints on campus in the wake of inappropriate incidents involving students and faculty members. Enforcement of the policy will be moved from legal affairs to the university’s office of Equal Employment and Opportunity, and a new position will be created to oversee harassment and discrimination complaints. In addition, all administrators will be required to undergo training on the university’s harassment policy. Since January, local media have reported numerous incidents of sexual harassment on campus, some dating back as far as 20 years. At the request of University Council, Adams said he would appoint a task force to explore the option of creating a women’s center on campus, which would deal with education and awareness, support and advocacy, safety, equity and community.
