Section VI (Reporting/Confidentiality Obligations of College and University Employees) of the Policy sets forth in subsection B the “Responsible Employees,” who are required to report any incident(s) of sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, or sexual violence to the College’s Title IX Coordinator. These Responsible Employees include:
