Title IX - Responsible Employee

Responsible Employee

University employees, other than those who work in the Health Center or Counseling Center, are not confidential resources and are considered “responsible employees.” Responsible employees have a duty to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator.  Examples of a responsible employee are a faculty member, staff member, student employee or a resident advisor.

Information shared with a responsible employee will be disclosed only to those individuals who have an essential need to know in order to carry out their University responsibilities.  As is the case with any educational institution, the University must balance the needs of the individual reporting an alleged offense with its obligation to protect the safety and well-being of the community at large.

Review the Responsible Employee Guide.
Review the Responsible Employee training slides.
