FAQ on Reporting Sexual Assault

If I witness or hear about a violation am I required to report it? How much information am I obligated to report?

Yes, all employees at Berea College, except student labor are “required reporters”. This depends on your position at that college. Different employees on campus have different abilities to maintain confidentiality. They are separated here in to 3 categories: Responsible Employees, Counseling Employees and Other Employees. The only exceptions are confidential resources who are counselors at counseling services and college chaplains at CCC.

Required reporters make their report to the TIXC and share all known details of a report made to them.
