UI Mandatory Reporting
The University of Iowa places a high premium on confidentiality whenever possible. At the same time, the University is a state institution and is covered by many regulations and policy requirements that can override a desire for confidentiality. Certain members of the University community may be required by law to report accusations of wrongdoing.
UI community members required to report certain types of misconduct include:
- Collegiate deans, including associate deans and assistant deans
- Academic departmental executive officers (DEOs)
- Staff members whose primary job involves providing academic advice to students
- Residence Hall Staff
- Faculty members serving as departmental (or collegiate) director of undergraduate or graduate studies
- University president, director of Equal Opportunity and Diversity, vice presidents (including assistant and associate vice presidents), provost (including assistant and associate provosts), and those persons' designees
- Plus others; see the definition of "Academic or administrative officer" in the University Operations Manual II.4.1.b(3)
