All employees of NYIT, other than Counseling and Wellness and Academic Health Care Center professionals, are required to promptly report details of incidents disclosed to them to the Title IX Coordinator. Therefore, disclosing parties may want to consider carefully whether they share personally identifiable details with non-confidential employees.
However, even NYIT offices and employees who cannot guarantee confidentiality will maintain a disclosing party's privacy to the greatest extent possible. The information a disclosing party provides to a non-confidential resource will be relayed only as necessary for the institution to investigate and/or seek a resolution. This means information may be shared with investigators, witnesses and the responding party, but the circle of people with this knowledge will be kept as tight as possible to preserve a disclosing party's rights and privacy. But it is important to remember that NYIT cannot guarantee that other parties will not disseminate information on their own.
Generally, climate surveys, classroom writing assignments or discussions, human subjects research, or events such as Take Back the Night marches or speak-outs do not provide notice that must be reported to the Title IX Coordinator by employees, unless the disclosing party clearly indicates that they wish a report to be made. Remedial actions may result from such disclosures without formal institutional action.
