The University’s primary concern is the safety of its students, faculty and staff, and to encourage reporting of Prohibited Conduct. All University employees (Faculty, Adjunct Faculty, Staff, Residence Hall Directors, Resident Assistants (RA’s), Athletic Coaches and Staff (including graduate assistants), Club Sports coaches and assistant coaches, Academic Advisors, Student Activities Coordinator, Human Resources Staff, etc.) have a duty to report actual or suspected Prohibited Conduct to appropriate officials, though there are some limited exceptions for those with “legal privilege.” Reporting parties may want to consider carefully whether they share personally identifiable details with employees who have a duty to report, as those details must be shared by the employee with the Title IX Coordinator and/or Deputy Title IX Coordinator(s), and/or MUPD. To be clear, employees with a duty to report must share all the details they receive.
