All Oregon State University employees are considered "Responsible Employees" and must consult with the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access when they are made aware or have reason to believe that a violation of the University Policy on Sexual Misconduct and Discrimination has occurred. Information on who is a Responsible Employee and when to report is detailed in the policy on Responsible Employees and Reporting Incidents of Sexual Misconduct and Discrimination. Exemptions from consultation exist only for employees who serve in a professional role in which communication is privileged under university policy (e.g., medical provider, licensed professional counselor). Reports can be made by calling, emailing, completing the online form, or stopping by the office.
Including a statement to your syllabus that informs students of your responsbility to report incidents of sexual misconduct can help students make informed descisions and assist you in fulfilling your responsibilities. The office has provided this example for your use:
Title IX Reporting
OSU is committed to providing a learning environment that is free of all forms of sexual discrimination and misconduct. Please be aware that I need to report incidents you disclose to me inside or outside the classroom that involve gender or sex-based harassment, violence, or discrimination, including your name, to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access (EOA). For more information on how EOA responds to reports, please visit their website at eoa.oregonstate.edu. However, if you wish to make a confidential disclosure and receive information on resources and services, please contact the Survivor Advocacy and Resource Center (SARC) by phone (541-737-2030), by e-mail (email@example.com), or visit them in the Plageman Building.
