Texas Southern University (TX): In November 2011, OCR resolved a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of sex. Specifically, the complainant alleged that TSU failed to take prompt and effective action to address sexual harassment aimed at her by a TSU professor. Before OCR reached an investigative compliance determination, TSU expressed a desire to voluntarily resolve the complaint. The University has agreed to review its Title IX grievance procedures to address complaints of sex discrimination (including sexual harassment and sexual assault). The University has also agreed to provide training to its Title IX Coordinators, along with any other coordinators or University officials who will be involved with sex discrimination complaints. Additionally, the University will establish a committee of students and staff members to identify strategies to ensure that all University students understand their rights under Title IX.
