Raising Awareness of Title IX and Sexual Assault

 

What is Title IX?

Title IX protects people from discrimination on the grounds of gender, sex, gender identity or expression, and sexual orientation.

 

Who does Title IX affect? 

Title IX affects all students, staff, faculty and visitors at Texas State (and at all other federally funded educational programs or activities).



What are examples of Title IX violations?

Have you ever heard someone share one of the following?

“He keeps texting and emailing me even though I have asked him not to.”

“She screams at me in public, puts me down and calls me names.”

“I felt pressured to have sex when I didn’t want to.”

If so, you may have heard someone share an example of a Title IX violation, or sexual misconduct. Texas State University’s Title IX/Sexual Misconduct Policy outlines prohibited sexual misconduct, including:

  • sexual assault
  • sexual harassment
  • sexual intimidation
  • stalking
  • dating violence
  • family (domestic) violence
