In support of that objective, this Policy prohibits sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking against any student or employee by any person under the control of the College.

Further, this policy prohibits retaliation against any member of the College community who in good faith reports a violation of College policy or who cooperates in an investigation, disciplinary process, or judicial proceeding arising from such a report.
This Policy applies to all College students, administrators, faculty, staff, and third parties within the College’s control. This policy applies regardless of the sex, sexual identity, or sexual orientation of the parties. Individuals who violate this Policy and its affiliated procedures are subject to discipline up to and including expulsion for students and termination for employees.
This Policy and its affiliated procedures implement legal requirements found in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and its implementing regulations; the Clery Act and its implementing regulations; and the Texas Education Code, chapter 51, subchapter E-2.
