At AUM, the safety and security of our students is a top priority. It is important that you know the expectation in your role as staff and faculty. University employees who have the authority to take action to redress the harassment, have the duty to report harassment or other types of misconduct to appropriate officials, or who a student could reasonably believe has this authority or responsibility are considered to be Responsible Employees.

Additionally, employees and those representing AUM have to consider that they are not necessarily privy to all the information (similar incidents, past decisions, new rulings, etc.) needed to make the necessary determinations in these types of situations.

However, if there is a belief or suspicion that an incident has occurred, send the employee or student to the Office of Human Resources and Affirmative Action and follow-up with the Chief HR Officer at 334-244-3639 to personally ensure that the situation has been redirected appropriately. The Office of Human Resources and Affirmative Action works closely with the leadership on our campus in a vigilant effort to prevent and immediately respond to violations and ensure a culture and a workplace free from discriminatory and harassing behaviors.
