Notice of Nondiscrimination and Abuse

WARNING: The following notice may contain culturally sensitive or offensive content.

Texas A&M University is committed to providing a safe and non-discriminatory learning, living, and working environment for all members of the University community. The University provides equal opportunity to all employees, students, applicants for employment or admission, and the public, regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Texas A&M University will promptly investigate and/or resolve all complaints of discrimination, harassment (including sexual harassment), complicity and related retaliation based on a protected class in accordance with System Regulation 08.01.01, University Rule 08.0.01.M1, Standard Administrative Procedure (SAP) 08.01.01.M1.01, and applicable federal and state laws.

Reporting Responsibilities

Any employee who experiences, observes, or becomes aware of alleged  discrimination, sexual harassment, and/or related retaliation must promptly report the incident(s).  A student and third party should also promptly report the incident(s), but are not required to do so. More information about an employee’s reporting obligations may be found in System Regulation 08.01.01, Section 4.1.

Certain employees are considered “confidential” because they are only required to report de-identified statistics to the University: licensed health care personnel and licensed counselors when acting in this capacity as part of their official employment.  All other employees should advise a reporter that they cannot keep the information confidential and are required to report it.

A student can contact a licensed counselor in Student Affairs at +974.4423.0136.  A staff or faculty member can contact a licensed counselor in the TAMU Employee Assistance Program at +1.979-845-3711. To the extent possible, the university will protect the privacy of parties to the report within the context of the university’s duty to provide a safe and nondiscriminatory work and educational environment.
