Title IX

Zero Tolerance Environment

SWOSU is a zero tolerance environment related to any kind of discrimination or harassment.  This includes sexual and gender related discrimination as covered by Title IX.  It states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

Retaliation Policy

SWOSU prohibits retaliation against anyone who has submitted a complaint for discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct under this policy or local, state, or federal laws. SWOSU also prohibits retaliation against someone assisting an investigation, or assisting another to submit a complaint of discrimination or harassment.

If you are experiencing retaliation or aware of retaliation, please notify the Title IX Officer.

Dean of Students serves as the Title IX officer for the entire SWOSU community.  Any Title IX related concerns should be immediately reported to him by emailing studentdean@swosu.edu; or calling (580) 774-3767.
