Title IX Message to CAU Students


Dear Clark Atlanta University Students,

The University recently became aware of social media messages on several Twitter accounts where individuals who identify themselves as Clark Atlanta University students are accusing other Clark Atlanta University students of sexual misconduct and assault. We are concerned about the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of all students, especially during this challenging and turbulent period. We recognize the sensitive nature of sexual misconduct and encourage students to report any such concerns to the Title IX Office.

As a reminder, Clark Atlanta University prohibits all forms of sexual misconduct. The Title IX Office remains available during the COVID-19 pandemic to help you decide how to move forward after experiencing any form of sexual misconduct. The Title IX Office is available to answer any of your questions about the process and about your rights, options, and resources. If you or someone you know has experienced any sexual misconduct, you may reach the Title IX Office directly at titleIXcoordinator@cau.edu.

The University strictly prohibits retaliation for participation in the Title IX process. The Title IX Office’s ability to respond fully to a report may be limited if the report is anonymous or if the complaining individual declines to participate in the process.

The University offers free, confidential counseling and other support services for students through the Office of Counseling and Disability Services and the Office of Religious Life. If you would like to speak with a representative in Counseling Services, please contact Joyce Worrell at jworrell@cau.edu or (404) 880-8044. Students may contact the University Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Tonya Miles, at tlawrence@cau.edu or (404) 880-8041.

Please be safe during these challenging times. 

Warm regards, 

Dorcas D. Bowles

Provost and Vice President, Academic Affairs
