Definition of Mandated Reporter

Most University Employees have a duty to report Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Dating and Domestic Violence, and Stalking incidents when they are on notice of them. When a victim tells the Title IX Coordinator or another University Employee about a Sexual Misconduct, Dating or Domestic Violence, or Stalking incident, the victim has the right to expect the University to take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate what happened and to resolve the matter promptly and equitably. In all cases, the University strongly encourages victims to report Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Dating and Domestic Violence, and Stalking incidents directly to the Campus Title IX Coordinator.

As detailed above in the Privileged and Confidential Communications section of this policy, all University Employees except physicians, licensed counselors, sexual assault counselors and advocates, and their staffs must report to the Title IX Coordinator all known details about any Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Dating or Domestic Violence, or Stalking incidents of which they become aware. The University will need to determine what happened – and will need to know the names of the person(s) involved, any witnesses, and any other relevant facts, including the date, time and specific location of the incident.
