A responsible employee/community is a member of the Haverford community who has an affirmative duty to report all instances of sexual misconduct that come to their attention. All employees, other than those noted above, including non-confidential members of “The Circle” plus student leaders in the Customs Program fall into this category, and are considered responsible employees/community members.
When a victim/survivor or a third party (friend, family ,coach, faculty or staff member, etc.) tells a responsible employee/community member about an incident of sexual misconduct, s/he can expect that the College to take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate what happened and resolve the matter promptly and equitably. The responsible employee/community member must report all relevant details of the allegation of sexual violence received, including the name of the victim/survivor, and the individual alleged to have engaged in sexual misconduct, any witnesses, and any other relevant facts, such as date, time, and specific location of the incident.
