Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) will present “Consent Week” Feb. 3-10 with activities geared for students, employees, and the community, including the return of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play, “The Vagina Monologues.”

Consent Week, sponsored by the TAMIU Office of Compliance, is part of an ongoing effort to raise awareness among the TAMIU community about Title IX, on and off campus resources, and the importance of reporting incidents of sexual assault, sexual violence, and sex/gender discrimination.

Title IX, a segment of the Education Amendments of 1972, prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex/gender from any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
