Inaugural Title IX Annual Report

October 16, 2019

Dear Roadrunners,

As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency and raising our community’s awareness about matters of sexual assault, harassment and misconduct, I am writing to share UTSA’s inaugural Title IX Annual Report.

This report provides data from student-related investigations handled by the Equal Opportunity Services (EOS)/Title IX Office during the 2018-2019 fiscal year.

Among the report’s highlights:

  • The EOS/Title IX office handled a total 421 reports involving students, faculty and staff during the 2018-19 fiscal year.
  • Of those 421 reports, 24% (103) were classified as student-on-student Title IX reports. Of those, 40% (41) became student-on-student Title IX cases.
  • 92% of all employees completed online discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct training last year, and 100% of athletic employees and student-athletes completed sexual assault training as required by the NCAA.

I’d also like to bring to your attention an important bill passed by the Texas State Legislature this year that went into effect on September 1, 2019. SB 212 requires all university employees to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator. More information on SB 212 is included in this year’s compliance training for all faculty and staff.

To further President Eighmy’s strong commitment to an environment free from sexual misconduct, I am very pleased to announce that UTSA is launching a new EOS/Title IX presence at the Downtown Campus. This office will open on November 1, 2019 and will be located in the Frio Building, 2.422.

UTSA’s commitment to creating an environment where all Roadrunners have a safe place to study, work and live requires ongoing focus and the support of all of you – our Roadrunner community. Thank you for your mindfulness around these important matters.
