Reporting Obligations

Reporting Obligations of Responsible University Employees

Federal law and UMD Policy requires that the Title IX Officer receive notice of all reports of sexual misconduct. This means that all disclosures of different types of sexual misconduct shared with a "Responsible University Employee," must be reported to the Title IX Office.

A responsible employee includes all University administrators, supervisors, faculty members, law enforcement, coaches, trainers, and resident assistants. It also includes individuals who are perceived as having the authority or duty to take action or to report sexual misconduct to the University. A Responsible University Employee who receives a report of sexual misconduct must promptly notify the Title IX Officer of the report.

The Title IX Officer will work collaboratively with the reporting entity, and operates with discretion to maintain the privacy of all persons involved.
