To Whom and Where Does this Policy Apply?
Required Reporting by Employees
There are two types of required reporting:
Sexual Violence Against Minor Children or Vulnerable Adults

This is an individual obligation to report. Reporting the sexual violence to an administrator or supervisor does not relieve the employee of reporting it to law enforcement or the appropriate agency.
The college also requires employees who have witnessed or suspect such abuse to report it to an administrator, who in turn is required to report it to the president.
