Training by Title lX Coordinator (Michael Hechme) certificates and Questions and Answers on the Title lX Regulations on Sexual Harassment (July 2021) (Updated June 28,2022).

Three federal laws create reporting responsibilities for campus employees, faculty, and professaonal staff to: Ensure appropriate services to victims of sexual violence foster transparency about campus crimes Permit the institutaon to appropriately remedy discramination and harassment.

All faculty, employees and professional staff are expected to report acts of sex and/or gender discrimination-including sexual violence -involving any membe(s) of the campus community, guests, or visitors to the Title lX Coordinato( without delay.

The Title lX Coordinator’s role is to oversee efforts to investigate promptly, thoroughly, and effectively, remedy, stop, and prevent all forms of sex harassment and sex discrimination. The Title lX Coordinator also looks for patterns of behavior and ensures provision of services and support to the parties involved in an allegatjon.

Mandated Reporters: Full Reporting “Confldential” Reporting lvlust report all known information regarding an incident to the Title lX Coordinator without delay Report only nonidentafiable, aggregate information regarding incidents disclosed to them All employees except those who are confidential Only professional Counselors and Medical Providers

All employees are Mandatory Reporters, meaning they must report all known information regarding incidents of sex/gender discrimination, sexual violence, or crime to the Title lX Coordinator (with the exception of those who are confldential). q Though many employees have mentoring and close relationships with students and other employees, it is not appropriate to promise someone that you will
not report what they tell you. q Thus, if it appears that a victim is about to disclose information regarding a crime, sex/gender discrimination, or sexual violence, employees should make sure the victam understands that you will have to share details of their report with a small circle of administrators who may be obligated to act on the information.

Only professional counselors, pastoral counselors, and health service medical staff whose official responsibilities include providing medical services or mental-health counselang to members of the school community may provide “complete” confidentiality for reported incidents. Wll only report information with the consent of the victim or if there is a legal “duty to warn.” For professional counselors or medical providers to maintain confldentiality, they must have received the notice while working within the scope of their lacensure, certification, and job description.

Should a victim wish to make a confidential report, employees should facilitate a meeting with counselors or medical staff who may maintain confidentjality. Community resources, such as local victim advocacy centers and domestic violence shelters, are addataonal confidential reporting resources. Confidential reporters provide aggregate data without personally identifiable information. Unless the clienUpataent
consents to the sharing of more detail.

Confidentiality Full Report to Title lX Coordinator Full Report to Law Enforcement Should seek out counselors or medical providers May also seek confidential resources from off-campus Any employee should assist the victim with this request; Title lX Coordinator will ensure that Safety & Security notified ton extent mandated by law Any employee should assist the victim with this request, Safety & Security will then also notify the Title lX Coordinator

All employees (faculty & staff) are expected to report crimes involving any membe(s) of the campus community to Safety & Security without delay, unless a sex crime victim does not wish the report to be made (a report must be made to the Title lX Coordinator no matter what). Exception: Reporting of child sexual and/or physical abuse should be made to Safety & Security and the Department of Public Welfare
Exception: Emergencies that impact on the health or safety of campus should be reported to law enforcement even if a victim does not want to report.

Student staff are considered mandated reporters for information they learn while they are working. When off duty, student staff are not mandated to report. Timely warnings must be issued immediately by Campus Police/Public Safety for crimes that represent a threat to the campus, so do not delay your report as mandated
