Morgan State University’s definition of sexual assault only includes penetration. Morgan State University does not offer sexual assault training. They do not have an affirmative consent policy. Retaliation against survivors is forbidden, though no definition of retaliation is provided.
Office of Diversity and Equal Employment Opportunity, Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, and campus police conduct investigations. It is not clear who determines the finding of responsibility or the sanction. Possible sanctions are listed. It appears that both parties may retain an attorney at their own cost, though they are discouraged from participating in the investigative procedures. There is no information on appeals online. It is unclear when sanctions go into place or what the specified timeline for completing investigations is. It is not stated whether investigators are trauma informed or if Morgan State University allows mediation in cases of sexual assault.
It is unclear whether Morgan State University gives survivors accommodations outside the reporting process. The University Counseling Center offers counseling but it is not specified whether counselors are trained in working with survivors. There is a University Health Center but specific services are not listed online. They do not appear to have a sexual assault crisis center and instead refer survivors to a local hospital. On-campus medical services are not available after hours. The university offers information about local resources and rape crisis centers. Morgan State University does not specify whether campus police are trauma informed.
