Policies & Regulations
A. University Employees Who Must Report
The University employees who are obligated by law or by
University designation to report potential violations of this
Regulation are those who are Responsible Employees and
Campus Security Authorities. Examples of Responsible
Employees include Deans, Directors, Department
Chairs, Coaches, Student Affairs professionals (including
Resident Advisors), and faculty who serve as advisors
to student groups. Members of the University Police
Department are also Responsible Employees. Responsible
Employees will safeguard an individual’s privacy, but are
required by the University to immediately share all details
about a report of Prohibited Conduct (including the known
details of the incident (e.g., date, time, location), the
names of the parties involved, a brief description of the
incident and whether the incident has been previously
reported) with the Title IX Coordinator in person, by
telephone, electronically, or by email. Such reporting
ensures timely support for all parties and enables an
effective and consistent institutional response.
Campus Security Authorities must share all known
details of an incident which may constitute a Clery
Crime, consistent with the expectations for Responsible
Employees with the Clery Act Coordinator and the Title IX
Coordinator. The Clery Act Coordinator is responsible for
maintaining the University's daily crime log and annual
security report which contains information on certain
crimes but no identifying information with respect to a
Reporting Party.
B. Other Individual's Reporting Obligation
(Except Confidential Resources)
All other employees (who are not designated as
confidential resources) will safeguard an individual’s
privacy, but are strongly encouraged to share any
information about such conduct with the Title IX
Coordinator and/or a member of the Response Team
in recognition of the understanding that centralized
reporting is an important tool to address, end and prevent
Prohibited Conduct.
Similarly, all students (who are not otherwise required
to report as a Responsible Employee and/or Campus
Security Authority) are strongly encouraged to report any
information, including reports or partial reports, to the
Title IX Coordinator and/or a member of the Response
C. Confidential Resources
The trained professionals designated below can provide
counseling, information, and support in a confidential
setting. These confidential resources will not share
information about an individual (including whether that
individual has received services) without the individual’s
express permission unless there is a threat of serious
harm to the patient/client or to others or there is
a legal obligation to reveal such information (e.g.,
suspected abuse or neglect of a Minor). The on- campus
professionals are also available to help an individual
make a report to the University.
