This guide is provided to help AUB mandatory reporters understand their responsibilities, what to report, and how to report. At the most basic level, mandatory reporters
report. AUB 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 formal complaint. Mandatory reporters help ensure the University is aware of incidents and patterns.
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:
Confidential resources are not obligated to report. See below for more information about who is considered a confidential resource.
If you are the victim of an incident, you are not obligated to report it.
Mandatory reporters are responsible for promptly reporting any alleged act of sex-based discrimination—including sexual harassment or sexual violence— that occurs at AUB/AUBMC or off-campus at AUB/AUBMC activities. Sex-based discrimination is prohibited by AUB policy and by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
The reporter does not have to witness the incident. They should also report when they are informed or learn of an alleged incident.
Reportable incidents include:
