Title IX: University of Houston System Sexual Misconduct Policy

University of Houston System Sexual Misconduct Policy

The University of Houston-Victoria strives to maintain and strengthen an educational, working, and living environment where students, faculty, staff and visitors are free from sex discrimination of any kind.  The University of Houston System Sexual Misconduct Policy guides our management of the non-criminal reporting, processing, investigation, and resolution of complaints of sexual misconduct against students, employees, and visitors.

What is Sexual Misconduct?

Sexual Misconduct, as defined by the policy above, constitutes a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX and Title VII, and includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, sexual intimidation, domestic (family) violence, dating violence, and stalking by employees, students, and visitors.

Sexual Misconduct Formal Complaint Questionnaire

Have you experienced any form of sexual misconduct while a student, employee or visitor to campus?  If so, contact the Title IX Coordinator to learn more about our policies and/or complete the Formal Complaint Questionnaire to have your complaint formally investigated. 

Salutations (Student Sexual Misconduct Online Training)

All new students (undergraduate and graduate) must complete Salutations online training.  The training provides information on the UH System Sexual Misconduct Policy, procedures, and resources. Salutations informs students of their rights, responsibilities, options and resources when dealing with sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct.  New students will receive an email with further instructions for completing this training. To access the training, visit the Training Access Portal.

We encourage student groups to get involved and work with us to stop, prevent, and remedy any sex discrimination on campus.

Contact the Title IX Office to find out how you can help.
