These divisions are subject to the Rules and Regulations of Emory University with which students are expected to comply whether pursuing their educational program in a University-owned facility or in a non-University facility to which they have been assigned. Further, since Emory University, as a corporation, is a creature of public law, official cooperation with public law enforcement agencies has been exercised traditionally with regard to the interests of the University community.
