Duty to Report Sexual Misconduct

Texas Woman’s University is committed to eliminating sexual misconduct and to providing support to any individual who has been a target of sexual misconduct. Because of this commitment and as called for by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, all faculty members and graduate assistants must report any instance of sexual misconduct that you disclose in the course of discussion or an assignment. Title IX places no time limit on our need to report a violation. Therefore, if you disclose experiences such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, or relationship violence which occurred during your studies at TWU, then we must report this to the University’s Title IX Coordinator to determine whether further action is necessary.

If you wish to report an incident, you may do so by contacting the Title IX Coordinator (Symone Osieko - sosieko@twu.edu) directly. You also have the option to submit an anonymous report (https://cm.maxient.com/reportingform.php?TexasWomansUniv&layout_id=43) although the ability to investigate may be limited.

The Counseling and Psychological Services center on campus (940-898-3801) provides free service to TWU students, and its employees are exempt from mandatory reporting.
