TITLE IX REPORTING: WHO IS A “RESPONSIBLE EMPLOYEE

Any “Responsible Employee” who knows or should know about possible sexual harassment or misconduct must report it to ISU’s Title IX Coordinator so that the university can respond appropriately.  Responsible Employees include but are not limited to:

  • All instructors, including professors, adjunct instructors, lecturers, and any other employees who offer classroom instruction or office hours to students;
  • All advisors;
  • All student affairs administrators; 
  • All residence hall staff;
  • All coaches, trainers, and other athletic staff that interact directly with students;
  • All supervisors and university officials; and
  • All employees who work in offices that interface with students.

If a student reports prohibited conduct to a Responsible Employee, that employee has an obligation to report the prohibited conduct directly to the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO).  Prohibited conduct that must be reported includes:

  • Sexual misconduct
  • Sexual assault 
  • Stalking
  • Intimate partner violence
  • Sexual exploitation
  • Sexual intimidation
  • Sexual and/or gender-based harassment

When a student reports prohibited conduct to a Responsible Employee, in addition to reporting the misconduct to OEO that employee should (1) notify the student that the Responsible Employee is not a confidential resource, and (2) provide the student with available confidential resources.  Employees can also refer students to the General Resource Guide, which was created to educate and assist students regarding sexual misconduct and contains information about reporting options, resources, and interim measures. 

Additional information regarding Title IX reporting and other applicable policies, laws, and resources is available at the Title IX website.
