Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Denial of Civil Rights

Texas State believes that freedom of thought, innovation and creativity are fundamental characteristics of a community of scholars. To promote a safe learning environment, the university has a special responsibility to build a diverse community, instill a global perspective in its students, and nurture sensitivity, tolerance and mutual respect. Discrimination against or harassment of individuals on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, veterans' status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression is inconsistent with the purposes of the university.

Persons at Texas State University will not be deprived of their civil rights on the campus or in connection with a university-sponsored activity. Persons who harass or discriminate against another person are subject to disciplinary sanctions up to and including removal from the university.

For questions regarding discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct, please contact the Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Gilda Garcia at 512.245.2539, by email at gg18@txstate.edu or equityaccess@txstate.edu or in person at J.C. Kellam 164.
