Mandated Reporter Policy

The College has also classified all employees (except Confidential Resources, as defined in the Policy on Sexual Misconduct) as Mandated Reporters of any knowledge they have that a member of the community is experiencing harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation. The Policy on Sexual Misconduct details which employees have this responsibility and their duties, accordingly.

Confidential Title IX Counselors

The Gordon College Center for Student Counseling and Wellness (CSCW) provides a broad range of general counseling and wellness services. All of the counselors are confidential resources, which means they maintain strict confidentiality, and they are not mandated reporters of sexual misconduct; they will not notify anyone (including the College and/or Title IX Coordinator) about reported sexual harassment or assault, unless the reporting party specifically authorizes them and/or requests their help in doing so. In addition, certain counselors (listed below) have been specifically trained as Confidential Title IX Counselors (sometimes referred to as Confidential Title IX Resources). They are a great option and resource for community members who would like to learn more about Gordon's Title IX processes and the various options available to them in a safe and confidential environment. For more details, see the Policy on Sexual Misconduct.

To schedule an appointment with a Confidential Title IX Counselor, please use the CSCW intake form available here (be sure to select, "Title IX Intake with a confidential resource" in the "I am interested in" section at the end of the form; there is no charge for this service).
