Ways to File a report for Sexual Misconduct
If you have a concern regarding sexual misconduct and want to report it to the Title IX coordinator and/or request follow up, please complete the Title IX - Report Sexual Misconduct form.
Employees, students and visitors to campus with questions and/or complaints regarding discrimination or sexual misconduct (such as sexual violence) under Title IX may contact the Title IX coordinator in person in the Equal Opportunity and Title IX Office located at University West, Rm. 116.
In an emergency, dial 911. To file a report with the police, contact local law enforcement where the incident occurred, or for campus police call (361) 570-HELP (4357). Campus police may be able to assist you in contacting local law enforcement if the incident occurred outside campus police jurisdiction.
You may make an anonymous report online at the Fraud & Non-Compliance Hotline or by calling (866) 843-4379. However, filing a report without identifying the details of the incident or the reporting party may limit our ability to conduct a thorough investigation. Responsible employees must report to the Title IX Coordinator. Employees may submit an anonymous report if they experience discrimination or misconduct personally.
