Reporting an Incident

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REPORT
All TAMIU employees and students are responsible for ensuring their work and educational environments are free from sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and related retaliation. When alleged or suspected sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or related retaliation is experienced by, observed by, or made known to an employee or student, the employee or student is required to promptly report that information.


HOW TO REPORT
Reports can be made to a supervisor, the Title IX Coordinator, the Title IX Deputy Coordinator (contact info below), or by emailing TitleIX@tamiu.edu.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER REPORTING?

With regard to criminal acts of sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, TAMIU’s Title IX administrative process for responding is different and separate from the criminal process followed by police (University or local police).  A victim is not required to file a report with police but is strongly encouraged to do so.  In addition, a victim can file a report with the Title IX Coordinator.  Regardless of whether or not a victim files a report with police, TAMIU is responsible for following up on all Title IX reports received (sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, etc.)

When a Title IX report is filed with the Title IX Coordinator, interim accommodations and/or protective measures can be provided at the victim’s request or as reasonably available (see below) and a trained investigator may be assigned to the case. The investigation and resolution process is prompt, thorough, and impartial for all parties. The standard used to determine the merits of a Title IX report is the preponderance of evidence (i.e., more likely than not that misconduct occurred). Both parties are informed in writing of the outcome and may appeal on limited grounds.

For additional information, see System Regulation 08.01.01, TAMIU Rule 08.01.01.L1, and the TAMIU Student Handbook.
