Covenant College has designated all employees as “Responsible Authorities”. Responsible Authority is an umbrella term used to encompass both Responsible Employees under the College’s Title IX policy (also referred to as officials with authority to take action) AND Campus Security Authorities under the Clery Act.

If you are an employee of Covenant College, you are a “Responsible Authority.” This includes Resident Assistants.

Simply put, this means you must report certain crimes to the College. It is not necessary that you gather more information about an incident, that you know for certain if an allegation is in fact true, or even if it is a crime reportable under the Clery Act or Title IX. It is only required that you report what you know and that you should report the possible crime as soon as you become aware of it.

All Covenant College employees are requested to watch the short training module entitled Responsible Authority Proficiency in Incident Disclosure:


To report information pertaining to a crime or policy violation at Covenant College, please use the following:

Title IX Coordinator - Brad Voyles: (706) 419-1107

Title IX Deputy Investigator - Jon Wylie: (706) 419-1108

Gun violence, as well as other forms of violence, can sometimes be preventable. Students who are at risk of hurting themselves or others may display signs and signals before an act of violence takes place. When you don’t know what to look for, it can be easy to miss signs or dismiss them as unimportant. Please take a moment a watch the 2 ½ minute video entitled “Evan” produced by Sandy Hook Promise.



Please visit the Sandy Hook Promise website for more information relating to preventing gun violence and other tragedies.
