It is important to understand the different responsibilities of Hampshire College Employees. Every Hampshire College Employee is designated as a “Responsible Employee”, a “Confidential Employee” or a “Private Employee.”
A “Responsible Employee” is any Employee who is not a Confidential or Private Employee. A Responsible Employee is required to immediately report to the College’s Title IX Coordinator all relevant details (obtained directly or indirectly) about Sexual Misconduct Violations that involve a College Student or Employee as a Complainant or Respondent, including dates, times, locations, and names of parties and witnesses. Responsible Employees include Resident Advisors, Community Facilitators, Teaching Assistants, EMTs, and all other student-employees when disclosures are made to any of them in their capacities as employees.
Responsible Employees are not required to report information disclosed (1) at public awareness events (e.g., “survivor speak-outs”, candlelight vigils, protests, or other public forums in which students may disclose Sexual Harassment; collectively “Public Awareness Events”; or (2) during an individual’s participation as a subject in an Institutional Review Board- approved human subjects research protocol (“IRB Research”). The College may provide information about Title IX rights and about available College and community resources and support at Public Awareness Events, however, and Institutional Review Boards may, in appropriate cases, require researchers to provide such information to all subjects of IRB research.
