This policy designates as “responsible employees” for Title IX purposes those employees who have the authority to address prohibited conduct and whom students would reasonably expect to have the authority to remedy prohibited conduct in in light of this policy. The UO refers to responsible employees as “Designated Reporters” because they are always obligated to report student disclosures to the Title IX office if they have “reportable evidence” of prohibited conduct. These employees are required to direct students who disclose sexual harassment or sexual violence or any other form of prohibited discrimination or harassment to resources that can help and have the responsibility to report the information shared with them to the university administration.
