What are “Mandated Reporters"?

Designated employees of EVMS who must notify a Title IX Coordinator when they learn about a sex discrimination or sexual harassment matter (including sexual violence) involving an EVMS student, employee or other member of the EVMS Community.

Who are Mandated Reporters at EVMS?

Mandated Reporters at EVMS are:

¨  The President of EVMS

¨  Any Senior Vice President or Vice Provost

¨  Any Vice Dean, Associate Dean, or Assistant Dean

¨  Ay Program Director of a Health Professions Educational Program.

If I talk to an Mandated Reporter about sex discrimination or sexual misconduct, what will he/she tell me?

In cases of sexual violence, the first priority is always addressing the immediate needs of the victim (safety/security and support). Once that has been addressed, or in cases not involving sexual violence, the Mandated Reporter will tell you: 

¨  That they have an obligation to report what you tell them to a Title IX Coordinator so your confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, but any request for confidentiality will be passed to the Title IX Coordinator.

¨  That there are Confidential Resources available to you if you want to speak with someone confidentially.

¨  That you have a right to file a Title IX Complaint and information about what can be found on the EVMS Title IX webpages.

¨  That you are protected from retaliation in accordance with the Office of Compliance Reporting/Anti-Retaliation Policy
