Title IX Designated Officials
The Title IX Coordinator has primary responsibility for coordinating efforts for investigation, resolution, implementation of corrective measures, and monitoring the educational environment and workplace to stop, remediate, and prevent discrimination on the basis of sex.
To assure University-wide compliance with this procedure and with federal and state law, the Title IX Coordinator must be advised of all reported incidents of discrimination or sexual misconduct and their resolution, regardless of where the complaint is brought, investigated, or resolved. The Designated Official or designee in conjunction with the Title IX Coordinator will investigate allegations of discrimination in consultation with the respondent's supervisor, provided the supervisor is not an alleged perpetrator.
Any member of the University community may report conduct that may constitute sexual harassment/misconduct under this policy. In addition, administrators, faculty, supervisors, managers and other designated employees are responsible for preventing sexual harassment, to correct it when it occurs, and to report it promptly to the Title IX Coordinator designated to review and investigate sexual harassment and complaints regarding discrimination, harassment, abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
Students, faculty, staff, visitors, and applicants for employment or admission should notify the appropriate Designated Official below who handles alleged violations perpetrated by students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Employees and student should also notify their supervisor (if that person is not the suspected offender), but are not required to report alleged violations to a direct supervisor or the alleged offender and may instead notify another supervisor or administrator.
For reporting incidents or making inquiries regarding discrimination based on sex, you may contact Ms. Deserie Rivera, the Title IX Coordinator and Compliance Officer at (254) 519-5722 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For emergencies call 911, the University Police Department (254) 501-5800, or any local law enforcement agency.
