Frequently Asked Questions
Who can file a sexual misconduct/Title IX report?
Any member of the community can. Lawrence University takes all violations of Title IX seriously and therefore encourages any member of the community who has experienced sexual misconduct to report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator.
The campus advocate, counselors, health care workers, and confidential resources are considered confidential resources who are not required to report sexual misconduct but may do so with the permission of the person who disclosed the misconduct.
What happens to the report once it is filed?
The Title IX Coordinator will reach out to the person who reported to have experienced sexual misconduct to offer resources and support as well as discuss their options for addressing the situation, including filing a Formal Complaint. The Title IX Coordinator keeps reports private and secure. Information in reports is used to monitor potential threats to campus safety and to take steps to promote a safer environment.
Who is required to report sexual misconduct?
All non-confidential employees must report to the Title IX Coordinator, all relevant details (obtained directly or indirectly) about an incident of sexual harassment, including dates, times, locations, and names of parties and witnesses. Information brought to the attention of a non-confidential employee is not confidential.
Non-confidential employees includes faculty, coaches, Residential Education staff, administrators, supervisory staff, campus safety officers, and human resources personnel. For more information about employee reporting responsibilities, please read below.
If you are unsure about reporting, e-mail the Title IX Coordinator at email@example.com.
Employee Reporting Responsibilities
All non-confidential employees must report sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator unless they have been designated a confidential resource and are functioning in that capacity when receiving the report. If a Lawrence student, faculty or staff member, or visitor describes incidents that could be considered sexual harassment, assault, or exploitation:
1. Offer to listen and help. Say that you will report the misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator, and explain the purpose and privacy of these reports. If possible:
- Show the person the SHARE website. The website has emergency contacts and other resources, the sexual misconduct policy, and a list of confidential resources.
- Connect the person with a confidential resource or Campus Advocate. Confidential resources can help the person get emotional support, counseling, or medical care; arrange for protection or academic accommodations; seek an educational intervention; file a formal complaint; or contact law enforcement.
2. Fill out the form. Click "submit" to send the report to the Title IX Coordinator.
