What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities at federally funded institutions. Title IX protects training participants, staff and visitors to our campuses from all forms of sex discrimination.
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination and is prohibited under Title IX. Unwelcome conduct on the basis of sex (of a sexual nature or otherwise): 1) by an employee who conditions the provision of an aid, benefit, or service on an individual’s participation in that unwelcome sexual conduct; 2) determined by a reasonable person to be so severe and pervasive and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to education, programs or activities; 3) sexual assault or dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking based on sex.
The following are examples of types of conduct that may constitute sexual harassment:
• Inappropriate touching, patting, or hugging
• Nonconsensual sexual activity
• Invasion of sexual privacy
• Obscene phone calls, texts, emails, photographs, or gestures
According to Texas A&M System Regulation 08.01.01 and Texas State Law, all employees (except for confidential employees) who experience, observe, or become aware of alleged discrimination, harassment, or related retaliation must promptly report the incident(s) to the Designated Official at TEEX:
