College Employees’ Duty to Report 

Where violations of sexual misconduct, harassment, and discrimination may have occurred, all Rose State College employees who have witnessed or who have been advised of such alleged violations have a duty to report claims of sexual misconduct, harassment, and discrimination to the Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Title IX Coordinator.  The campus Title IX Coordinator is the Senior Director, Human Resources/Affirmative Action Officer, 6420 SE 15th Street, ADM Room 104, Midwest City, OK 73110, (405) 733-7979.The Deputy Title IX Coordinators are the Senior Director of Student Life at (405) 733-7387 in the Student Services Building, Room 208, the Coordinator for Safety, Security and Risk Management at (405) 736-0213 in the Susan Loveless Center, Room 117 and the Chief, Student Conduct and Service Learning at (405) 735-0355 in the Student Services Building, Room 208.

The only employees who do not have a duty to report are employees who are statutorily prohibited from reporting because of a privilege recognized under Oklahoma law – e.g., attorney-client privilege, physician- and psychotherapist-patient privilege, religious privilege, etc. Such a privilege would negate the duty to report only when the employee receiving the complaint is acting in the privileged capacity. 

Employees must promptly (i.e., within 24 hours of receiving information) report knowledge of sexual misconduct, discrimination, and harassment to the Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Title IX Coordinator. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination. College employees, supervisors and administrators who receive a complaint of discrimination, harassment or retaliation must provide the complainant with information about filing such a complaint, including providing the complainant with the Discrimination/Harassment Complaint Form, if requested, and providing the complainant with contact information of the Title IX and Deputy Title IX Coordinators. The Deputy Title IX Coordinators are the Senior Director of Student Life at (405) 733-7387 in the Student Services Building, Room 208, the Coordinator for Safety, Security and Risk Management at (405) 736-0213 in the Susan Loveless Center, Room 117 and the Chief, Student Conduct and Service Learning at (405) 735-0355 in the Student Services Building, Room 208.
