Sexual Misconduct (Title IX)

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits sexual discrimination in federally funded educational programs or activities.  Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence, is a form of sexual discrimination.  Texas State University is committed to providing an environment that is free from all forms of discrimination, including discrimination based on sex.  In order to address concerns related to sex discrimination on campus, Texas State University has appointed Dr. Gilda Garcia as Title IX Coordinator.
