Individuals who experience discrimination, harassment or sexual assault have options regarding who to tell, if anyone. All BHSU employees--except licensed counselors and medical professional--are required to forward such reports to the BHSU Title IX Office; which is obligated to investigate all such reports. This obligation also requires us to notify law enforcement about felony acts. BHSU employees include, but are not limited to: RAs, hall directors, faculty and staff members, academic advisers, coaches and administrators.
BHSU will work with you to protect your privacy by sharing information with only those who need to know. As such, your information may need to be shared with those involved in investigating the incident, those responsible for providing necessary resources and remedies and those responsible for ensuring the public’s safety. Depending on the safety of the complainant or witness, the complainant’s or witness’ wishes for next-steps and the overall campus safety, the Title IX Coordinator will discuss these options case-by-case. The Title IX Office uses a strict privacy protocol with all reporting and investigation information.
