Office of Title IX and Gender Discrimination


Baylor is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all community members, guests and visitors. We believe that all individuals have the right to be free from all forms of sex and gender-based discrimination, which includes sexual harassment, acts of sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. Respect is one of the College’ core values. All campus community members are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe on the rights of others.

One way Baylor demonstrates its commitment to nondiscrimination is by maintaining compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

Baylor College of Medicine admits students of any race, sex, sexual orientation, color, national ethnic origin, disability or age to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally afforded or made available to students at the College. Baylor does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, color, national or ethnic origin, disability or age, in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administrated programs.

This website provides educational information to help trainees, faculty and staff of the College understand and identify sexual harassment and sexual violence, options for reporting offenses, recommendations regarding reducing risk of sexual violence, suggestions on how you can support someone affected by sexual harassment or sexual violence, and support resources for seeking assistance.
