All faculty and staff at Kenyon, with the exception of those who hold confidentiality (such as health care providers), must report incidents of sexual harassment and/or violence to the civil rights/Title IX coordinator. Guidance from the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights has made this very clear: "If a school knows or reasonably should know about student-on-student harassment that creates a hostile environment, Title IX requires the school to take immediate action to eliminate the harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects." If a Kenyon faculty or staff member knows or should know of harassment, then the law considers the College to know.
