Information for Responsible Employees
Here is what you—as an employee of Marlboro College—need to know about reporting:
Title IX mandates that colleges endeavor to create a safe and non-hostile environment for every student. Title IX requires that the College respond to incidents of sexual harassment/misconduct to take appropriate steps to investigate and, as appropriate, end and remedy that harassment/misconduct, and training of the same.
For the purposes of Marlboro College, all staff (exceptions are those protected by confidentiality: Total Health Center staff and the Survivor Advocate.), faculty and some student leaders (RAs, trip leaders, peer advisors, summer program leaders) are considered to be Responsible Employees under Title IX.
This designation mean that as an employee, you are obliged to report any of the following to Jean Kiewel, our Title IX Coordinator, in a timely fashion:
If you learn about a criminal event sexual or otherwise discriminatory in nature that took place at Marlboro, whether or not community members were involved
If you receive a report of the same - verbally or written
If you learn about the same through writing assignments or any other indirect mechanism
To make a report contact:
Marlboro College Title IX Coordinator Jean Kiewel
Pager # (802) 742-4705
Title IX Coordinator, PO Box A, Marlboro, VT 05344
