Below is a recommended example of a statement that faculty may include on their syllabus addressing their reporting responsibilities and providing students information on resources and available support services. 

Title IX: Confidentiality and Responsible Employee Statement

Santa Rosa Junior College faculty are committed to helping create a safe and open learning environment for all students. If you (or someone you know) have experienced any form of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, or stalking, know that help and support are available. The College strongly encourages all members of the community to take action, seek support and report incidents of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Office. Please be aware that under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, I am required to disclose information about such misconduct to the Title IX Office.

If you wish to speak to a confidential employee who does not have this reporting responsibility, you can contact Student Psychological Services (Santa Rosa Campus 707-524-1595/ Petaluma Campus 707-778-3919).
