Sexual Misconduct Reporting Responsibility

Any university faculty, staff, official or student employee who is consulted about and/or witnesses behavior involving potential sexual misconduct has the responsibility to report the potential misconduct to one of the Designated Reporting Representatives. Students are expected to report sexual misconduct when they are consulted about and/or witness behavior involving potential sexual misconduct, and may fulfill the reporting expectation by contacting a Designated Reporting Representative, or anonymously at the (SAFE) Line at 216-368-7777. In addition, to the extent possible, the member of the university community should advise the complainant of the university's sexual misconduct policy and encourage prompt reporting to a Designated Reporting Representative (see Chart I). The university community member’s duty to report includes instances in which that member learns of the allegation:

  • From witnessing sexual misconduct

  • From a person who has experienced the sexual misconduct;

  • From a person who witnessed the sexual misconduct; or

  • From a person who heard about the sexual misconduct from another individual
