Sexual Harassment

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sexual harassment, sexual violence, and discrimination on the basis of sex. Title IX protects students, faculty, staff, and visitors to our campus from all forms of sex discrimination. 

The Title IX Office at Texas A&M University handles the investigation of Title IX cases. 

Texas A&M offers the Step In Stand Up Program to reduce the incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence on campus. Step In/Stand Up is a bystander awareness program designed to prevent sexual harassment and sexual violence.

Texas A&M also offers the Green Dot Program. Green Dot teaches participants to be aware of potential violence around them and provides the skills, strategies, and tactics to use the power of peer influence to intervene appropriately and safelty in high-risk situations. Green Dot teaches how to become an active bystander when acts of power-based personal violence are witnessed. Green Dot trainings are offered by a team of Aggie faculty and staff members who have gone through an extensive training.

This report describes the results of the 2019 Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct administered at Texas A&M University. Student responses to Campus Climate Survey items provide data that will inform efforts to prevent and respond to sexual assault and other misconduct at Texas A&M University.
