Texas Southern University (TSU) is a strong proponent of Title IX enforcement and in ensuring that sex discrimination and sexual violence is eradicated. Title IX is a Federal law that prohibits sex discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.  In accordance with Title IX, TSU policies prohibit sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assaults, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking.  Please review the University Title IX Grievance Procedure (MAPP 02.05.09) and familiarize yourself with its content. In addition to reviewing the TSU Title IX Grievance Procedure, below is a link to a Public Service Announcement recently released by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assaults.

Let’s all do our part to ensure Title IX compliance at Texas Southern University.  Working together, this goal can be accomplished.
