Title IX at UT Southwestern

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from sex discrimination including sexual misconduct, harassment, and violence in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance.

UT Southwestern Medical Center is committed to ensuring that the working, educational, and training environments are free from sex discrimination. In compliance with Title IX, sex discrimination is prohibited. Individuals who engage in such conduct will be subject to disciplinary action.

All UT Southwestern employees, individuals holding a faculty appointment, students, trainees, and applicants should carefully review UT Southwestern’s Title IX policy, EDU-116 Sex Discrimination - Sexual Misconduct, Harassment, and Violence

Complaints or reports of sex discrimination should be submitted as soon as possible after the conduct giving rise to the complaint in accordance with EDU-116P-01 Sex Discrimination Complaint and Resolution.

  • You wish to understand your options if you think you may have encountered sex discrimination such as sexual misconduct, harassment, or violence.
  • You learn of a situation involving potential sex discrimination that you feel may warrant a University investigation.
  • You need help on how to handle a situation that indirectly affects you.
  • You need guidance on possible informal remedies or administrative measures to de-escalate or alleviate a difficult situation.
  • You have questions about UTSW’s policies and procedures related to sex discrimination.
