The University of Texas at Dallas is committed to providing an educational, living and working environment that is welcoming, respectful and inclusive of all members of the University community. An environment that is free of discrimination and harassment allows members of the University community to excel in their academic and professional careers. To that end and to the extent provided by applicable federal and state law, the University prohibits unlawful discrimination against a person because of their race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age, disability, genetic information, or veteran status. The University’s commitment to equal opportunity extends its nondiscrimination protections to include sexual orientation, gender expression and gender identity.
UT Dallas policy on Prohibited Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Sexual Misconduct – UTDBP3102
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.”
Complaints against a UTD student, visitor, or staff or faculty member for sexual harassment, sexual discrimination, or sexual assault, should be made to the Title IX Coordinator. In an emergency, victims of sexual assault should dial 911. For non-emergencies, they may contact the UTD Police Department at (972) 883-2222.
It’s On Us
The It’s On Us campaign is a program of the Center for American Progress, in partnership with the White House Council on Women and Girls, and the Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. It’s On Us aims to change the way everyone thinks about sexual assault. Instead of viewing it as something that happens only between one victim and one offender, It’s On Us wants everyone to know they have a role to play in preventing sexual assault.
