Stephen F. Austin State University strives to provide an educational and work environment that affirms the rights and dignity of each individual. It is the policy of the university, in accordance with federal mandate and state law, to prohibit unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex and gender.
Title IX HOP policy 01-307 outlines the university's commitment and details the procedures used to prevent, respond and investigate complaints.
The university prohibits and will not tolerate sex- and gender-based discrimination as such behavior violates the university's institutional values, adversely impacts the university's community interest, and interferes with the university's mission. Once the Title IX office becomes aware of an incident of sex- or gender-based misconduct, we will effectively respond in a manner designed to eliminate the misconduct, prevent its recurrence and address its effects.
