Mandatory Reporting FAQs

Responsible Employees, including all faculty and staff (who are not designated as Confidential Employees), Resident Advisors, and Teaching Assistants or Teaching Associates, are required to promptly share with the University Title IX Coordinator all details they receive in the scope of their employment about Prohibited Conduct.

Responsible Employees must share with the University Title IX Coordinator all details they receive in the scope of their employment about Prohibited Conduct. This includes any known information about the:

  • Date, time, and location of the Prohibited Conduct;
  • Name of the affected party or parties;
  • Name of the party alleged to have engaged in Prohibited Conduct;
  • Names of any witnesses identified; and
  • Details provided about the alleged Prohibited Conduct.

Prohibited Conduct includes the following: Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, Stalking, Sexual Exploitation, and Retaliation.

Responsible Employees are not required to investigate or gather additional details from the affected party or reporter beyond those details that are shared.

Additionally, Responsible Employees should report information about Prohibited Conduct regardless of the affiliation of the parties involved, the timeframe of the alleged Prohibited Conduct, or the location where the Prohibited Conduct took place.

Responsible Employees are required to share information they learn promptly to ensure community members affected by sexual misconduct are aware of the resources and supportive measures available to them as well as of their right to file a Formal Complaint with the Department of Title IX.

Prompt reporting is also important to ensure that the affected party is safe, and if they are not, to ensure that the affected party is informed of resources to assist with safety planning.

Please report using the Department of Title IX’s online reporting form, located online: The form can also be found here.

Mandatory Reporting ensures that every community member who may have experienced harm is connected to staff members who are trained to handle these sensitive situations and who are knowledgeable on available resources and resolution options. This in turn helps Emory create a safe, respectful, and inclusive environment for all community members.
