(Sept. 28, 2011) -- UTSA President Ricardo Romo has appointed Leonard Flaum, senior equal opportunity investigator in the UTSA Office of Equal Opportunity Services, as UTSA's Title IX coordinator.
U.S. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of federal financial assistance.
Title IX protects students from sexual harassment in a school's education programs and activities including academic, educational, extracurricular, athletics and other programs, whether they take place in a school's facilities or at a class or training program sponsored by the school at another location.
Flaum was designated the employee to coordinate UTSA's efforts to comply with and carry out the university's responsibilities under Title IX. All complaints of sex discrimination including sexual harassment and sexual violence should be reported to Flaum. UTSA will use current university policies to investigate and provide resolution for all sex discrimination complaints referred to the Title IX coordinator.
For more information, contact Leonard Flaum at 210-458-4120.
UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
