About Title IX

Texas A&M University-Central Texas (TAMUCT) is committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility, and mutual respect in an environment free of sexual misconduct and discrimination. Sexual discrimination not only violates an individual's fundamental rights and personal dignity, it is also a violation of federal and state law. TAMUCT considers sexual discrimination in all its forms to be a serious offense. This website is a resource on sexual discrimination for students, faculty, staff and visitors who are part of the TAMUCT community.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Sex Discrimination is a behavior or action that denies or limits a person's ability to benefit from, fully participate in educational programs or activities or employment opportunities because of a person's sex. This refers to all forms of sex discrimination, including but not limited to: sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation, sexual violence, and failure to provide equal opportunity in educational programs and co-curricular programs including athletics, discrimination based on pregnancy, and employment discrimination.

To ensure compliance with Title IX and other federal and state civil rights laws, TAMUCT has developed rules and procedures, followed by System policies that prohibit sex discrimination in all its forms.

Any member of the campus community or public who witnesses, is subjected to, or is informed about incidents of discrimination, sexual harassment, and/or related retaliation should report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator or Designated Official who handles alleged violations perpetrated by students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

Members of the Texas A&M University-Central Texas community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.
