Resolution Number

2017-2018_56

Abstract

The Title IX & College Compliance Officer and Deputy Title IX Officer are requesting important edits to the Mandatory Title IX Syllabi Statement passed in 2014-2015. Mosty importantly, this statement clarifies who on the College campus is a "confidential" source for reporting and who is NOT "confidential."

The issue of students' being aware that faculty must report to the Title IX Officer if they disclose of being a victim of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and/or stalking, has come up in several of the fac/staff Title IX training sessions. The new statement will provide clarification and also reflects changes in federal and state compliance obligations.

Proposing the new statement to be included in all Course Syllabi and replace the existing statement is the following:

"Sex and Gender discrimination, including sexual harassment, are prohbited in educational programs and activities, including classes. Title IX legislation and College policy require the College to provide sex and gender equity in all areas of campus life. If you or someone you know has experienced sex or gender discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, or stalking, we encourage you to seek assistance and to report the incident through resources available at https://www.brockport.edu/about/title_ix/. Confidential assistance is available on campus at Hazen Center for Integrated Care and RESTORE. Faculty are NOT confidential under Title IX and will need to share information with the Title IX & College Compliance Officer. For these and other policies governing campus life, please see https://www.brockport.edu/support/policies/student.php"
