Equal Opportunity Statements

Texas A&M Transportation Institute is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Veterans/Disability Employer. TTI does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, disability, age, or covered veteran status in its programs and services.

Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments and Texas A&M Transportation Institute prohibit discrimination in educational programs and activities based upon sex.

Sexual harassment, including sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination and is therefore prohibited under Title IX. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct is so severe, persistent or pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with a person’s work or educational performance or creates an intimidating or hostile environment.

The following are examples of types of conduct that may constitute sexual harassment:

  • Inappropriate touching, patting, or hugging
  • Nonconsensual sexual activity
  • Invasion of sexual privacy
  • Obscene phone calls, texts, emails, photographs or gestures

Any person (student, employee, or public) who believes that discriminatory practices have been engaged in based upon sex may discuss their concerns and file a complaint of possible violations of Title IX.

Texas A&M Transportation Institute will promptly and thoroughly investigate all complaints of discrimination, sexual harassment, and related retaliation in accordance with applicable federal and state laws (including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972), Texas A&M System Policy 08.01 and Regulation 08.01.01.

An individual who believes that he or she has been subjected to discrimination, sexual harassment and/or related retaliation should promptly report the incident(s) to her/his supervisor, the Director of Human Resources or the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights (214-661-9600). If you are victim of sexual assault or sexual violence, or know someone who has been a victim of a sexual assault or sexual violence, you should immediately contact the Texas A&M University Police Department at (979) 845-2345 in addition to notify the Title IX Coordinator listed below.
