Discrimination Complaints

The office of Equal Opportunity & Title IX at Texas State University is responsible for overseeing and enforcing the university’s equal opportunity policies and for investigating complaints of discrimination, harassment and retaliation.

Texas State prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, veterans’ status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Additionally, Texas State prohibits retaliation against a person who files a harassment or discrimination complaint, or who assists or participates in the investigation of a report.

Employees of the university are required to comply with policies that prohibit discrimination and retaliation. Administrators and supervisors who, in good faith, become aware of or suspect violations of the discrimination, harassment or retaliation policies are responsible for reporting them immediately to their supervisors and to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX.
