What About Confidentiality?

Mandated Reporting

At Angelo State University, all employees, including student employees (who are not designated as confidential resources), are deemed responsible employees. Responsible employees, who in the course and scope of their employment receive information regarding an occurrence of an incident that the employee reasonably believes constitutes sexual misconduct alleged to have been committed by or against an individual who was a student enrolled at or an employee of the university at the time of the incident, shall promptly report the incident to the Director of Title IX/Title IX Coordinator. The responsible employee must report all known details of the incident to the Director of Title IX/Title IX Coordinator.

Confidential Reporting

If a complainant wishes to keep the details of an incident involving sexual misconduct confidential, the complainant should speak to a licensed clinical and/or medical professional employed by the university or an off-campus resource, such as the local rape crisis center or clergy. The University Health Clinic and Counseling Services, along with the 24-Hour Crisis Helpline, have trained staff who can take your confidential report.

Anonymous Reporting

Reports may be made anonymously utilizing the online reporting form. When submitting the report, please include as many details as possible. Note that while you may submit an anonymous report, it will greatly limit the ability for the Office of Title IX Compliance to address your concern.
