If you are a faculty or a staff member who works regularly with students, you are a “responsible employee” under Title IX who must share what you know with Cathy Gage, Title IX Coordinator, Kingscote Gardens, 419 Lagunita Drive, Suite 240, Stanford, (650) 497-4955, firstname.lastname@example.org. (Knowing that you must share can be nerve-wracking. We suggest that you are direct with the student and let them know that you must act under a legal obligation. Let the student know that the Title IX Office will work with the student to try and meet their needs, including trying to give them agency about whether to proceed to an investigation.)
