Creating a safe campus environment

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It reads: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

The University of Texas at Arlington (“UTA”) is committed to maintaining a learning environment that is free from discrimination based on gender, including inappropriate conduct of a sexual nature.  Sexual harassment (including sexual violence, stalking, domestic violence and/or dating violence) and sexual misconduct in any form are prohibited and will not be tolerated. Any individuals who engage in such conduct will be subject to disciplinary action.

Complaint against a UTA student, visitor, or staff or faculty member for sexual harassment, sex discrimination, or sexual assault, should be made to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinators. Victims of sexual assault should also consider contacting the UTA Police Department at (817) 272-3003.

UTA’s Title IX Coordinator is:

Jean Hood, Vice President for Human Resources
