Mandatory Reporter Responsibilities: Guide, Inform, Report
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A Guide for Reporting Sexual Harassment, Discrimi​nation, and Assault

This guide is provided to help AUB mandatory rep​orters understand their responsibilities, what to repo​​rt, and how to report. At the most basic level, mandatory reporters guide, inf​orm, and report. AU​B is guided by the goals of empowering survivors of harassment and discrimination and allowing them to retain as much control over the process as possible.

Why is this guide important? AUB is committed to providing a safe and non-discriminatory learning and working environment, in which students, faculty, staff, and visitors feel confident in reporting suspected misconduct. AUB is also committed, and may be required by law, to take action if it learns of alleged sex-based discrimination including discriminatory harassment, even if an individual does not wish to file a for​mal complaint. Mandatory reporters help ensure the University is aware of incidents and patterns. 



THE BASICS: ​ ​Expand All

AUB has designated the following individuals as mandatory reporters of suspected or actual sex-based discrimination (including sexual harassment and sexual violence) that occurs on-campus of off-campus at AUB/AUBMC activities:

  • All faculty
  • Professional managerial-level staff
  • Supervisors
  • Protection Officers
  • Medical residents
  • Residence hall (dorm) staff and monitors ​

​​​​THE PROCESS: ​ ​​ Expand All

Mandatory reporters should guide, inform, refer, and report.​
​​ ​


As a mandatory reporter, you cannot maintain complete confidentiality. If you witness or are informed of an incident of sexual harassment, discrimination, or violence, you are responsible for reporting it to the Title IX Coordinator. The University will maintain the privacy of the information, and only those who need to know will be informed.

Respecting Survivor's Needs and Wants: If a reporting party does not wish for their name to be shared in a report, does not wish for an investigation to take place, or does not want formal resolution to be pursued, the reporting party may make this request to the Title IX Coordinator. The Coordinator will make every effort to respect the wishes of the survivor. See more info below.​

No employee – other than counselors, health care providers, or others officially designated – can or should promise confidentiality​.

​An informal incident report can be submitted in-person, by email, by phone or at It is only considered a formal 'notice' when a “Notice of Discriminatory Harassment Form" is submitted to the University.
