Title IX & Clery Act
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance. Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Health Science Center are committed to maintaining a learning environment that is free from discriminatory conduct based on gender. As required by Title IX, the University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs and activities, and it encourages any student or non-student who thinks that he or she has been subjected to sex discrimination, sexual harassment (including sexual violence) or sexual misconduct by another student, member of the faculty or staff, or campus visitor or contractor, to immediately report the incident to any of the individuals persons or offices listed below.
To report issues of Title IX violations, please contact:
Executive Director, Payroll and HR Services
Title IX Coordinator
The University encourages students to immediately consult with or report incidents of sex discrimination, sexual harassment (including sexual violence) or sexual misconduct to the TAMHSC Title IX Coordinator. Students may also report incidents of sex discrimination, sexual harassment (including sexual violence) or sexual misconduct to any School of Public Health administrator, university administrator, official or unit supervisor, who is then responsible for promptly notifying any of the above Title IX coordinators of the reported incident.
Supporting the Academic Success of Pregnant and Parenting Students
Title IX prohibits discrimination in or exclusion from education on the basis of sex. This includes discrimination or exclusion based on pregnancy or recovery from child birth. The United States Department of Education provides additional information in a downloadable pamphlet. This pamphlet outlines requirements regarding pregnant and parenting students participation, absences, types of assistance, and other key aspects of students who are pregnant or parenting. Questions may be directed to the Title IX Coordinator noted above.
Prompt and appropriate communication by the student is necessary to ensure appropriate accommodations are provided. While retroactive requests will be considered, making arrangements in advance is preferred, and requests that are untimely may be denied on that basis.
The Jeanne Clery Act, a consumer protection law passed in 1990, requires all colleges and universities who receive federal funding to share information about crime on campus and their efforts to improve campus safety as well as inform the public of crime in or around campus. This information is made publicly accessible through the university's annual security report.
