Reporting Incidents and Filing Complaints

The reporting responsibilities of Texas Southern University Employees or the University’s responsibility to investigate, may conflict with the preferences of the Complainant and/or Respondent regarding privacy and confidentiality.

If an individual believes they have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or stalking, before requesting an investigation, an individual may wish to speak with a Confidential Resource person. Confidential Resources can help individuals consider the options available to them without judgement.

Individuals who believe they have experienced Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking may request an investigation by clicking the online – Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct Complaint Form and pdf complaint form.

Individuals that witness or become aware of incidents involving Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking are encouraged to report these incidents by clicking the online – Report an Incident Form.
