*If seeking support from a non-confidential source, under Title IX, these individuals are considered "responsible employees" and must file an incident report to the Title IX coordinator. Please note that an incident report does not initiate an investigation.  A responsible employee includes any employee who has the authority to take action to redress the harassment, who has the duty to report sexual harassment to appropriate school officials, or an individual who a student could reasonably believe has this authority or responsibility.
