Title IX Policies and Reporting


Any employee of the university who becomes aware of an act of sexual harassment (including sexual violence) or behavior which could be characterized as sexual harassment, when perpetrated against a student of the university is considered a Mandated Reporter.  Exception: Employees with a legal obligation or privilege of confidentiality (including health care providers, counselors, lawyers, and their associated staff) are not considered Mandated Reporters and are not required to report when the information is learned in the course of a confidential communication.  However, if the information is not learned in the course of confidential communication (for example, behavior is observed in class) then the employee has the same obligation as a Mandated Reporter.
