All University employees, excluding those with confidentiality privilege, are expected to report any of the crimes, including those addressed in this policy statement, of which they become aware to the U.P and/or Title IX Coordinator.  However, the departments/individuals specifically listed above may have reporting obligations and are specially trained to respond to work with those who report sexual assault, domestic and relationship violence, sexual harassment, and stalking.  These individuals/offices can also assist complainants with notifying law enforcement if the complainant chooses.

Remember, reporting does not require the filing of criminal charges by the complainant.  A report allows the University to provide support to the complainant and respondent and assess the level of risk to the safety of the campus.  Once a report is made the University has an obligation to investigate and/or take action.  All reports received by Nicholls State University Police Department are shared with the Title IX coordinator and vice versa.
