If an employee learns about sexual harassment, discrimination, or sexual assault involving a student, the employee should promptly contact one of the individuals listed below, because Franklin & Marshall College has adopted a policy that defines all faculty and professional staff as mandated reporters.
There are three federal laws that establish responsibilities for employees of colleges to report certain types of crimes and incidents, especially sexual misconduct—the Clery Act, Title VII and Title IX. The responsibilities established by these laws give rise to the term “mandated reporter" or "mandatory reporter."
Employees who learn of an incident should promptly contact one of the following individuals:
Director of Sexual Misconduct Services
F&M 24-Hour Sexual Assault Response Team
When either the Title IX Coordinator or the Deputy Title IX Coordinator is notified, he or she will take responsibility for prompt notification to the Department of Public Safety and other appropriate College officials.
The Sexual Misconduct Reporting Form may be used to submit an online report. All submissions are forwarded to the Title IX Coordinator and the Deputy Title IX Coordinator.
