Every incoming student and new employee at Sam Houston State University is required to participate in and complete a training or orientation regarding sexual assault and the campus sexual misconduct policy during the first semester of enrollment or employment.  This training is designed to promote awareness of sexual offenses and to incorporate risk reduction strategies to enable community members to take a role in preventing and interrupting incidents of sexual misconduct.

Faculty and Staff

New employees can access the training through Talent Management (under the Employee tab in the My Sam portal).  Access the Title IX Training session listed under "Vie Transcript".  This training must be completed within 30 days of hire date.

For more information about faculty/staff requirements for Title IX compliance, contact David Hammonds at or call (936)294-1070.


Sam Houston State University promotes student safety and awareness through the use of Campus Clarity, a mandatory program for all new incoming freshman, transfer, and graduate students.  Campus Clarity educates students about the elements of healthy relationships, understanding and reporting sexual assault, the importance of sexual consent, and the role of bystanders in creating safe, healthy communities.

If you are a student completing your first semester at SHSU, you must complete Title IX training.  An email will be sent to your SHSU email account detailing the actions you should take.

Log in to your SHSU email account using your username and password.  Open the email from Sam Houston State University titled "Required Online Training for Title IX" and follow the instructions inside.  You will be taken to a site called Campus Clarity to complete "Think About It", an course on healthy relationships, personal safety, substance abuse, sexual violence, and more.

For more information about student requirements for Title IX compliance, contact Jeanine Bias Nelson at or call 936-294-3026.
