Title IX

TCU’s Title IX Office works with appropriate departments within the TCU community to provide a safe and supportive environment for students, staff, and faculty who are seeking advice and/or assistance if they have experienced sexual harassment, sexual battery, sexual assault, or rape. The office also assists TCU students, staff, and faculty with filing an informal or formal complaint based on Title IX violations. Additionally, this office revisits and revises its current policies to remain in compliance with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR).

Policies

Texas Christian University (TCU) is committed to providing a positive learning, living and working environment free from discrimination and harassment.  In support of this commitment, TCU prohibits a range of behaviors, including unlawful discrimination and harassment based on age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, ethnic origin, disability, predisposing genetic information, covered veteran status, and any other basis protected by law, except as permitted by law.  TCU also prohibits unlawful sexual and gender-based harassment and violence, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking (collectively referred to herein as “Prohibited Conduct”).

TCU also prohibits retaliation against an individual for making a good faith report under this policy, for participating in proceedings under this policy, or for opposing in a reasonable manner conduct believed to be prohibited by this policy.  Any person who may have been subject to discrimination, harassment or Prohibited Conduct should feel comfortable reporting their concerns without fear of retaliation.  TCU will take strong responsive action to threats or acts of retaliation.

Discrimination, harassment, prohibited conduct, and retaliation are incompatible with TCU’s mission to educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community, and can threaten the educational experience, careers and well-being of members of the TCU community, including employees, students, and visitors.  Such behavior will be addressed consistent with this policy.  Reported violations of this policy may be pursued using the grievance procedures outlined in Sections VII, VIII, IX and X of this policy.  Any student or employee who engages in conduct prohibited by this policy may be subject to disciplinary action and sanctions up to and including termination or expulsion from TCU.  TCU will take steps to prevent the recurrence of any harassment and to correct its discriminatory effects on a complainant and, if applicable, the TCU community.

TCU complies with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in the University’s programs and activities and retaliation; the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), as amended by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA); Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII); Chapter 21 of the Texas Labor Code; the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), and other applicable laws.
