Responsible Employees (Mandatory Reporters)

Definition of Responsible Employees

According to USC policy:

"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." (Source: https://policy.usc.edu/reporting-to-university-staff-and-faculty-student-misconduct/)

Additional information about providing a safe educational and work environment can be found in USC's Faculty Handbook, Chapter 6.

Additional information about responsible employees and other resources can be found on the Title IX website.
