Responsible employees (Student Misconduct)

Faculty, teaching assistants, academic advisors, residential assistants, and staff employees, including student employees, who hold supervisory positions are considered Responsible Employees.

Responsible Employees must immediately report all known information about suspected prohibited conduct to the Title IX Office. This includes the name of the parties and known details of the conduct. This duty applies no matter how the information is learned; whether from direct report from an affected party, from social media, or from a concerned third party. Failure by a Responsible Employee to make a timely report of prohibited conduct may be subject to discipline, up to and including removal from their position.

This report may be made to the Title IX Office via telephone call or email.

Any questions regarding who is a Responsible Employee should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator at (213) 740-5086.

All other staff employees

Reporting is an essential tool to address prohibited conduct and to keep the campus community safe. All employees who are not designated as Responsible Employees or confidential resources (see IV) should safeguard an individual’s privacy, but are also strongly encouraged to share any information about such conduct with the Title IX Coordinator or the Title IX Office.
