The Office for Access & Title IX advances a belonging, equitable, and supportive campus culture through our commitment to fulfilling the spirit of community and equal opportunity within the University community.
What We Do
Office for Access & Title IX is UT Southwestern’s primary office responsible for:
- Enforcing the University’s equal opportunity and Title IX policies
- Facilitating the accommodation process for students, employees, and applicants with disabilities
- Investigating complaints of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation
- Fostering a campus environment that is inclusive, respectful, and free from discrimination and harassment
Campus Accessibility Services collaborates with UT Southwestern departments to provide reasonable accommodations for faculty, staff, and students. We advance campus accessibility and foster community through training and interactive support for all individuals who face barriers to the academic or working environment due to qualifying medical conditions.
Staff Experience & Belonging
We ensure that all people have fair and equal access to employment opportunities at UT Southwestern. The employment equity team identifies underrepresentation in the workplace and outlines strategies to recruit, retain, and advance the most qualified individuals (including military veterans) to meet the goals of UT Southwestern’s Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity Statement.
We support UT Southwestern’s mission to create and maintain an educational and work environment free from all forms of sexual harassment, misconduct, exploitation, violence, and intimidation, where all students, faculty, and staff can learn, work and thrive.
Business Resource Groups
UT Southwestern’s six Business Resource Groups offer their membership a positive and inclusive environment and opportunities for facilitating personal growth, institutional advancement, health, and wellness.
