Project Safe is Vanderbilt's Center for Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response. Vanderbilt policies are not limited to the campus and extend to graduate students conducting field work and at conferences. Additionally, graduate student teaching assistances should review their responsibility to report incidents disclosed to them. 

Emergency Preparedness contains disaster preparedness materials and resources for the Vanderbilt Community. As a part of Emergency Preparedness, AlertVU rapidly sends messages to the delivery points the user has chosen—cell phone (voice or text), land line, or Vanderbilt email account—in the event of an emergency that poses an imminent threat or danger to the Vanderbilt community.
