Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits sexual discrimination in federally funded educational programs or activities. Under Title IX individuals are protected against discrimination based on sex.
Individuals can file a report for any of the following instances of sexual misconduct:
- Sexual Assault
- Dating Violence
- Sexual Harassment
- Domestic Violence
- Sexual Exploitation
- Sexual Intimidation (Cyber-stalking, Indecent Exposure, etc.)
You can file a report for someone else. You can file a report anonymously. You can file a report using a pseudonym. If you or someone you know are interested in filing a formal complaint through the Title IX office please contact the Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Garcia, at 512.245.2539 or email titleIX@txstate.edu. Filing a report with Title IX opens up an academic investigation, not a criminal investigation. If individuals want to pursue a criminal investigation, they can contact Texas State Police Department or San Marcos Police Department.
