Reporting Student Gender-Based/Sexual Misconduct
All University employees who receive a report of alleged gender-based/sexual misconduct by a student, on or off-campus, must notify Ms. Amber Resetar, Esq., Director of Title IX and Clery Compliance. In addition, all University employees are required by North Carolina law to report abuse or neglect upon a child or any disabled person.
- Faculty or staff receiving reports of gender-based/sexual misconduct must complete the online Reporting Form.
- This form is located within "My Seaport" under the Academics Tab. If you do not have access to My Seaport, you can use the paper form.
- The reporting form must be completed within 1 business day. If using a paper form, deliver to Ms. Amber Resetar, Esq., Director of Title IX and Clery Compliance, via hand delivery (DePaolo Hall Room 1040), email attachment (firstname.lastname@example.org), or fax (910-962-7556).
Inform the student that they will receive direct contact from the Director of Title IX and Clery Compliance or designee with information about rights and resources.
Three departments remain confidential resources to students: CARE: Interpersonal Violence Prevention & Response, the Counseling Center, and the Abrons Student Health Center. These departments are exempted from reporting gender-based/sexual misconduct unless the student is willing.
When sexual harassment is alleged, all administrators and supervisors are required to report. Likewise, it is not your responsibility to determine if harassment has occurred. Rather, the reporting is required to ensure that a prompt investigation is undertaken. If the alleged harasser is an employee, this must be reported to the Human Resources office. Cases in which a faculty or staff member is notified of possible sexual harassment by a student require a report to the Office of the Dean of Students.
Harassment, including sexual harassment, is addressed through UNCW's Unlawful Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct Policy.
