Hearing Panelists Needed

The Title IX Office is also recruiting new members to serve on student sexual misconduct hearing panels. Each hearing panel consists of three faculty and/or staff members and decides cases of sexual misconduct involving accused students. Panelists receive annual mandatory training and participate in about one or two hearings per year. A minimum two-year commitment is requested.

With a new school year on the horizon, the Institute would like to remind employees of Georgia Tech’s and the University System of Georgia’s (USG’s) Sexual Misconduct Policies as well as certain employees’ responsibility as mandatory reporters. As a refresher, the Title IX Office offers educational sessions on the policies, reporting options and obligations, and campus resources for those impacted by sexual misconduct.

By definition, a “Responsible Employee” or mandatory reporter is required to promptly and fully report complaints of or information regarding sexual or gender-based misconduct to the Institute’s Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinator. Responsible Employees include any administrator, supervisor, faculty member, or other person (including student-employees in some cases) in a position of authority who is not a Confidential Employee or Privileged Employee, as defined by policy or law. 

“We understand that members of our campus community may be unsure what to do, for themselves or others, if faced with a gender or sexual misconduct issue,” said Marcia Bull Stadeker, Title IX coordinator in the Office of Ethics, Compliance, and Legal Affairs. “To ensure a safe campus and provide clarity about available resources and reporting options, we provide education and refresher training to interested campus groups and departments.”

Among other things, training participants will learn what qualifies as sexual misconduct or gender discrimination, where to seek help, who is a mandatory reporter, what types of reports are or are not confidential, and available administrative remedies.

To request training regarding Georgia Tech’s and USG’s Sexual Misconduct Policies, contact Marcia Bull Stadeker at marcia.stadeker@gatech.edu
