Responsible Employee Title IX
This term is used by Title IX (a federal law that addresses gender equity in schools) to indicate an employee who:
- Has the authority to take action to address sexual harassment and/or sexual misconduct
- Has been given the duty of reporting incidents of sexual harassment/misconduct (or any other misconduct by students to the Title IX Coordinator)
- A student reasonably believes would have this authority or duty
At UTHSC San Antonio, employees who are Responsible Employees are also CSAs.
If you’re ever not sure if something should be reported, just ask a Clery or Title IX Coordinator.
- If you’re not sure if it’s a crime, or even criminal in nature, report it to a Clery Coordinator. As a CSA, it is not your responsibility to determine if a crime actually occurred, apprehend the alleged perpetrator, or try and convince the victim to contact law enforcement.
- Victims have the right to not report the incident through formal channels and still get support from the university.
- The university cannot (either explicitly or implicitly) intimidate, threaten, coerce, or discriminate against victims for reporting.
- CSAs are responsible for (1) accurately reporting the crime information to the correct people in a timely manner and (2) supporting the individual sharing their experiences with you and providing them with options and resources.
- You are not a confidential source. As a CSA you must report the incident through your normal reporting structure or to one of the Clery Coordinators.
- When the crime involves sexual assault or sexual violence, the university must always do an investigation. Report as much information as possible to the Title IX Coordinator, John Kaulfus.
As a CSA or Responsible Employee you must report crimes that are reported to you. If you don’t feel comfortable going through the normal structure, contact one of the Clery Coordinators. All sexual assault crimes must be reported to the Title IX Coordinator.
