Title IX

Concordia University Texas strives to maintain a living, working, and learning environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, sexual violence, and other forms of mistreatment. Mistreatment of any employee, student, or visitor of Concordia University Texas or of any other person associated with the university is contrary to the religious and moral tenets and the mission of Concordia University Texas. The university prohibits harassment and discrimination on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, age, national origin, disability, genetic information, military or veteran status, and any other basis protected by law.

Reporting 

Filing A Complaint

Complaints may be filed with a Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinator. Please note that Title IX coordinators are not a confidential point of communication or support. Title IX coordinators will keep information as private as possible, but cannot guarantee complete confidentiality.  

Confidential Resources

Concordia's licensed professional counselor is available to assist victims in a confidential manner. The counselor may assist victims in deciding whether to report and in assiting others with access to campus and community resources. Concordia's counselor is not required to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator.

Concordia's campus pastor may also serve as a source for confidential communications when that individual is acting in that role.  

Law Enforcement

An individual may elect to file a criminal complaint with law enforcement. This can be done in addition to reporting an incident to a Title IX coordinator. An individual may choose to file a campus grievance and not with law enforcement, to file a criminal complaint with law enforcement and not a campus grievance, or to not file any complaint.  

Concordia encourages victims to take action, including reporting an incident of sexual misconduct to law enforcement.
