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 students, faculty, staff, and visitors to our campus from all forms of sex discrimination.
Sexual harassment, including sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination and is prohibited under Title IX. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, and nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct is so severe, persistent or pervasive that it affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work or educational performance, or creates an intimidating or hostile work or educational environment.
Our Commitment to You
Six core values are at the heart of what Texas A&M is all about: loyalty, integrity, excellence, leadership, respect, and selfless service.
These principals define the way members of our community should interact with each other, which means that sex-based discrimination, harassment (including sexual violence) and related retaliation have no place at Texas A&M.
Texas A&M University will promptly address all complaints of sex-based discrimination, harassment, and related retaliation made by or against faculty, staff, students, guests and vendors in accordance with our policies and applicable federal and state laws.
Texas A&M University recognizes the constitutional right of free speech and promotes the open exchange of ideas. These principals stimulate debate, which is essential to a rich learning environment. While members of the University community cannot be compelled to engage only in civil discourse, the search for knowledge and truth is best obtained in an environment that models intellectual inquiry, not bellicose comportment.
