Title IX - File a Report

You may file a report with the Title IX Coordinator and still be able to meet with the Confidential Advocate or Confidential Resource for services. If you disclose a Title IX violation with a KCC employee, KCC Title IX coordinators must complete an investigation.

Responsible Employees are University employees who are required to share the details of any report of sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct that they become aware of to the Title Coordinator.   Responsible Employees are required to report to the Title IX Coordinator even if the disclosing person asks them not to. In addition, a Responsible Employee who becomes aware of a report but is unsure whether the reported conduct qualifies as prohibited sex discrimination should still report to the Title IX Coordinator to enable the Coordinator to make an assessment and respond appropriately. Guide for “Responsible Employees” Under University of Hawaii Interim EP 1.204 (Rev. 3-18-17)
