Reporting Obligations for Employees and Faculty
To enable Liberty to respond effectively and to prevent future instances of Sexual Misconduct, certain Liberty employees and student-employees who are not Confidential Resources are designated as Responsible Employees.
Generally, Responsible Employees include employees and student-employees who have been given the duty of reporting acts of Sexual Misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator by the University and employees who a student could reasonably believe have the authority to take action to address Sexual Misconduct or a duty to report it.
At Liberty, Responsible Employees include the following populations:
- OEC Staff
- Residential Faculty
- Residential Deans
- Residential Adjunct Professors
- Online Faculty
- Online Deans
- Online Adjunct Professors
- Athletic Coaches – NCAA & Club Sports
- LUPD Staff
- Office of Community Life Staff
- Resident Assistants (RA)
- Resident Director (RD)
- Commuter Life Staff
- Online Life Staff
- Graduate Life Staff
- LU Shepherds
- Resident Shepherds (RS)
- Graduate Assistants
- Executive Leadership
All Responsible Employees (those listed above) who receive information about Sexual Misconduct are REQUIRED to report that information to the Title IX Coordinator by using the Report an Incident form below or by emailing email@example.com
Reports must be made as soon as possible, be in writing, and include all relevant details needed to assess the situation. This includes, to the extent known, the names of the Complainant, Respondent, and other individuals involved in the incident, as well as any known relevant facts, including the date, time, place, and circumstances of the incident.
All other Liberty employees who are neither Confidential Resources nor Responsible Employees and who receive such information in the course of their employment position or duties are strongly encouraged to report possible incidents of Sexual Misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator.
