How Do We Gather Crime Statistics?
CSAs = Responsible Employees under Title IX

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities
which includes sexual violence,
is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX
What does Title IX require?
NC State must respond promptly and effectively to reports of sexual violence (including sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, and retaliation)
Once it receives a report of sexual violence, the university must:
-eliminate any misconduct that occurred

How Do We Receive Reports of Sexual Violence?
Most acts of sexual violence are never reported to the police
Victims of sexual violence are more likely to report the incident to "Responsible Employees"
Who are Responsible Employees?

have been given a duty of reporting incidents of sexual violence; or
