Notice means that an employee, student, or third-party informs the Title IX Coordinator or other Official with Authority to institute corrective measures, of the alleged occurrence of prohibited conduct under the University’s Executive Policy 1.204 on Title IX Sexual Harassment.

Once the University has notice of a possible violation of Executive Policy 1.204, it should take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate and take prompt and effective steps to end any harassment, eliminate the hostile environment if one has been created, and prevent harassment from reoccurring. These steps are the school’s responsibility regardless of whether the student who was harassed makes a formal complaint or otherwise asks the school to take action.
