Mandatory Reporters

All UNA employees are considered "responsible employees" or mandatory reporters. That means thatany employees (with the exception of Student Counseling Services, University Health Services, and the Women's Center) who receive notice of sexual harassment, sexual violence, dating/domestic partner violence, or stalking are obligated to report the information to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinators.

Title IX Mandatory CANVAS Training

It is critical for our UNA community to prevent hostile environments on the basis of sex, prohibit sexual harassment and sexual violence, protect from retaliation, and remedy the effects of other gender-based forms of discrimination. One step in addressing this issue is making sure that University employees know to whom and how information should be reported when an individual reports being a victim of this behavior.

As mandated by federal law and in an effort to comply with the overall Title IX compliance effort, the University is providing a 15-20 minute training on mandatory reporting through Canvas.

Faculty Syllabi Requirements

Per Shared Governance approval March 2015, faculty will put information about Title IX on their syllabi. This strategy is one method to help educate our students about resources and reporting mechanisms should they be a victim of sexual violence or know someone who may be a victim.
