Faculty and staff may have questions about their reporting obligations under Title IX. Reporting obligations largely depend on someone’s role as a Responsible Employee. The Title IX Office offers consultations around reporting obligations and can even discuss hypothetical scenarios before moving forward with an official report. The Title IX office also has a great FAQ section on their website for general questions, as well as FAQs related to roles within an investigation and for parents/families. You can access this information on the Title IX website (titleix.tcnj.edu) under the “Get Help” section.
If a faculty or staff member has questions about supporting a survivor, AVI offers consultations around how best to approach disclosure (or debriefing a disclosure that has happened) and follow-up care and accommodations.
The College of New Jersey takes pride in being a welcoming and safe community. It’s on us to prevent power-based personal violence (sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking) by safely intervening when we notice harmful situations. These situations may include but are not limited to: a friend using sexist language, a classmate engaging in controlling or abusive behavior, or anyone not seeking effective consent before sexual activity (including times when one’s ability to consent is impacted by alcohol and/or other drugs).
Everyone’s experience with power-based personal violence is unique. If you, or someone you know, has been impacted by power-based personal violence, TCNJ offers many resources. Tuning into what you want or need may help determine which resources, if any, you choose to pursue. Anti-Violence Initiatives (AVI) is a confidential resource that can assist you in identifying your needs and help you understand the options available.
