Reporting

E. Mandatory Reporting: The University’s Reporting Requirement for Faculty Members, Staff Members, and Administrators

When any faculty member, staff member, or administrator observes, learns, or reasonably suspects a student or University employee has experienced sexual or related misconduct, that faculty member, staff member, or administrator must report all relevant details of the incident to the Title IX Coordinator, the Deans of Students for the campuses, the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, the Department of Public Safety, or Human Resources.

Reporting this information ensures that individuals who experience sexual or related misconduct are informed of their rights and options as well as the full range of resources available to them. Faculty members, staff members, and administrators are not required to report their own experience with sexual or related misconduct.

Faculty members, staff members, or administrators who do not know if they are obligated to report should contact the Title IX Coordinator, the Deans of Students for the campuses, the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, the Department of Public Safety, or Human Resources to discuss the proper steps to take.

As stated in the preceding section, the only Fordham faculty members, staff members, or administrators who are exceptions to the mandatory reporting requirement are Confidential Resources. This group solely consists of the following offices:

  1. Counseling and Psychological Services;

  2. University Health Services; and

  3. Office of Campus Ministry - Pastoral Counselors.
    • For more information about Confidential Resources, see Section VI(D) entitled, “Speaking with Confidential Resources - Community Members Who do Not Have a Duty to Report."
