Responsible Employees/Mandated Reporting

 According to Title IX, a "responsible employee" is an employee:

  • Who has the authority to take action to redress sexual harassment/violence, or
  • Who has been given the duty of reporting incidents of sexual harassment/violence or any other misconduct by students to the College’s Title IX Coordinator or other appropriate school designee, or
  • That a student/employee could reasonably believe has either the authority or the duty listed above.

It is considered official notice to the institution if a responsible employee "knew, or in the exercise of reasonable care should have known" about the harassment. This includes incidents that are reported directly, are witnessed, or are reported by a third party (parent, other student), posted on fliers around campus, published in a local newspaper, etc. - all of these should be reported to the College’s Title IX Coordinator.

Responsible employee should explain to the student/employee that they are not confidential resource before a student/employee reveals something that they may want to keep confidential.  If a person begins talking about the incident(s) with no warning, interrupt immediately (but nicely) and inform them that the conversation cannot be considered confidential.  Assure them that you want to be supportive, but if they do not want the incident(s) to potentially be reported then they should contact one of the College's confidential advisors.  In emergency situations, where a person's health or safety is in immediate danger, call 911..
