  • UMatter: Student Support and Advocacy Case Managers and office staff; Phone Number: 662-915-7248; Website: olemiss.edu;  Email:  umatter@olemiss.edu

 

Those who are designated as “responsible employees” have no confidentiality (i.e. employees whom a student could reasonably believe to be in a position of authority, including, without limitation, all faculty, instructors, administrators, supervisors, residential assistants and graduate teaching assistants) and MUST promptly report to the Title IX Coordinator all information known about the disclosed incidents of a Title IX violation. Failure to promptly report can result in discipline.
