Title IX Coordinators
Concordia University Texas has designated a Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinators to oversee compliance with Title IX. Any questions or concerns may be directed to any of these individuals.
Title IX Coordinator
Deputy Title IX Coordinators
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.
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.
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.
