The Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights defines a responsible employee has an individual, (a) who has the authority to take action to redress sexual harassment/misconduct, (b) who has been given the duty of reporting incidents of sexual harassment/misconduct or any other misconduct by students to the Title IX coordinator or other appropriate designee; or (c) who a student reasonably believes has this authority or duty.
A Responsible Employee must promptly notify the Title IX Coordinator of any report of sexual misconduct brought to his or her attention, including campus law enforcement. The Title IX Coordinator works collaboratively with the reporting entity, making every effort to operate with discretion and maintain privacy of the individuals involved.
