(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.
