Title IX Guidelines for Faculty and Staff

It is important to provide anyone reporting sexual violence or harassment with information and resources and allow them to make the decisions for themselves. Empowering victims/survivors with the opportunity to determine what is best for them provides them with a sense of autonomy and empowerment they may need to continue to be successful. Do not force your opinions, or what you think they need, onto the victim/survivor.

 I.   Respond

 II.  Refer

  III. Report

Under Title IX, sexual violence is a severe form of sexual harassment. Sexual violence is unacceptable and cannot be tolerated at the New Mexico Tech. Sexual violence may be committed by a stranger, an acquaintance or someone with whom the victim is involved in an intimate or sexual relationship.

Victims of sexual violence are encouraged to report what happened to law enforcement and seek assistance from any of the resources, on and off campus.
