Title IX Compliance

The University of Texas at El Paso is committed to maintaining a learning and working environment that is free from discrimination based on sex in accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded educational programs or activities.

Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination including sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and acts of sexual violence.  Sexual violence may include rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual coercion, stalking, and relationship violence.   Title IX prohibits institutions from excluding, separating, denying benefits, or otherwise treating individuals differently on the basis of sex.  Sex based discrimination is prohibited at UTEP both by law and by University and UT System policies.
