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 dedicated to providing a learning, living and working environment that is free from discrimination based on gender and sexual harassment. Sexual harassment (including sexual violence, sexual assault, stalking, family (domestic) 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. We are committed to providing a safe campus climate for the entire University community."

Complaints against a UTA student, visitor, or staff or faculty member for gender discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking or  family/dating violence should be made to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinators.  Reports can be made by phone, email, online reporting form, or in person. Victims/survivors of sexual assault should also consider contacting the UTA Police Department at (817) 272-3003.
