Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Texas State Technical College Waco policy prohibits discrimination based upon gender in its educational programs and activities. TSTC Waco is committed to creating an environment free of harassment and discrimination.


TSTC Waco does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities and provides equal access to applicants, employees and students.

Sexual harassment:

Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination and therefore prohibited under Title IX. “Sexual harassment is conduct that is

  1. Sexual in nature,
  2. Unwelcomed, and
  3. Denies or limits a student's ability to participate in or benefit from a school’s education program.” 

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

 -Inappropriate touching, patting, or pinching

 -Physical assault or coerced sexual activity

 -Obscene phone calls, texts, email, or gestures

 -Badgering someone for a date

 -Repeatedly making inappropriate sexual comments or  unwanted sexual advances

There are two types of sexual harassment:

Quid Pro Quo – Latin meaning “This for that”. Meaning, if “you do something for me, I’ll do something for you”.  An example of quid pro quo is “when a teacher threatens to fail a student unless the student agrees to date the teacher”.

Hostile Work Environment – “Hostile environment harassment occurs when unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature is so severe, persistent, or pervasive that it affects a student's ability to participate in or benefit from an education program or activity, or creates an intimidating, threatening or abusive educational environment. A hostile environment can be created by a school employee, another student, or even someone visiting the school, such as a student or employee from another school.”  

Any person (student, faculty, staff, or guest) who believes they have been subjected to discriminatory practices based upon gender may discuss their concerns and/or file an informal or formal complaint of possible violations of Title IX with the following Title IX Coordinator and/or Investigator. Upon receipt of the complaint, a determination will be made as to which individual will ultimately review the report.
