If you are a faculty or staff member who wants to be supportive of a student who has been the victim of gender-based misconduct, the Resources for Sexual Violence Prevention (RSVP) Programming Center provides a list of these things you can do.
All faculty and some staff are deemed “Individuals with Title IX Reporting Responsibilities.” Individuals with Title IX Reporting Responsibilities are required to report all the details of an incident (including the identities of both the student making the complaint and the alleged perpetrator) to the University's Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Students. Reporting an incident to a Title IX Coordinator is private and the person who experienced sexual misconduct does not lose control of the process. Individuals may choose not to move forward with disciplinary processes and may still request support services and/or accommodations from a Title IX Coordinator. Individuals with Title IX Reporting Responsibilities include faculty and instructors, Resident Assistants, Resident Heads, Resident Deans, TAs, preceptors, administrative assistants, UCPD staff, and other university employees.
