Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act, signed in 1990, defines a“Campus Security Authority” as an official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings. An official is defined as any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution.
Additionally, the Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Policy of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University requires all employees (faculty and staff) to report knowledge they have regarding incidents of sexual misconduct, see Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Policy, Section VIII, B. Employee Reporting Obligations.
To report information about any incident of sexual misconduct, which includes sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, contact the Title IX Office at 320-363-5943.
