The Office of Equity & Inclusion is home to the SHSU Title IX Coordinator, and is the central office for making a complaint regarding behavior that may constitute sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence. The Title IX Coordinator offers consultations for students, faculty, staff and supervisors who have questions or concerns. In addition, a person may call the Title IX Coordinator anonymously to discuss his/her situation and receive information, and decide what to do later.

In most instances, support, remedies and other resources can be provided right away! Title IX exists to deter gender-based discrimination and make our campus a safer, more welcoming place to be.
