APAC and Faulty Senate approved the following optional language for inclusion in the syllabus template (approved 10-26-20).


I am a responsible employee at UF, which means I am not a confidential resource. Therefore, I am required to report any information that I am aware that may violate UF's S ex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Other Forms of Sexual Misconduct Policy .  If you would like to speak with someone confidentially, please contact Counseling Services, Cosiano Health Center or Campus Ministries. Other resources include Open Arms and Blanchard Valley Hospital.  Otherwise, if you would like to report an incident involving a possible violation of UF's S ex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Other Forms of Sexual Misconduct Policy , please contact UF's Title IX Coordinator at 419-434-4739.
