Sexual Assault Reporting

Mandatory requirement to report sexual misconduct:

State law requires all UNT System employees to promptly report incidences of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator that they learn about in the course and scope of their employment when the employee reasonably believes sexual misconduct (sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence or stalking) has been committed by or against an individual who was employed at UNT System or enrolled as a student at the time of the incident. This includes instances when individuals with no affiliation with UNT System are either allegedly victimized by a UNT System employee or are accused of committing an offense against an UNT System employee. The Reporting form can be found here.

You can also report to the Title IX Coordinator at

Title IX Coordinator at or 817.735.5919

The information will be used to help enhance the understanding of the climate within the campus community so that UNT System may strengthen education and prevention efforts related to sexual assault, dating violence and domestic violence. Survivors also may use the form to request support. In addition to tracking sexual assaults, UNT System has a federal & state obligation to investigate complaints regarding sexual assault and take immediate action, including procedural steps, to reasonably end the behavior and to prevent the behavior from reoccurring.



UNT System defines sexual assault, dating violence and stalking in the following ways:

Sexual assault is sexual contact or intercourse with a person without the person's consent, including sexual contact or intercourse against the person's will or in a circumstance in which the person is incapable of consenting to the contact or intercourse.

Sexual harassment is unwelcome, sex-based verbal or physical conduct that in the employment context, unreasonably interferes with a person's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment, or, in the education context, is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that the conduct interferes with a student's ability to participate in or benefit from educational programs or activities at a post-secondary educational institution.

Sexual misconduct is conduct including sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence, or stalking.

Consent is defined as words or actions that show an active, knowing and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. Consent cannot be gained by force, coercion, manipulation, threats or taking advantage of the incapacitation of another when the individual knows, or reasonably should know, of such incapacity by use of alcohol or drugs. Consent is absent when the activity in question exceeds the scope of previously given consent, or the person is unconscious or otherwise unaware that the prohibited conduct is occurring. Consent may be revoked at any time.

Dating Violence is abuse or violence, or a threat of abuse or violence, against a person with whom the individual has or has had a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature. Dating violence includes physical abuse/assault, emotional abuse, verbal abuse, financial abuse and sexual abuse.

Stalking is a course of conduct directed at a person that would cause a reasonable person to fear for the person's safety or to suffer substantial emotional distress. Stalking behaviors can include, but are not limited to damage to victim’s property, repeatedly following the victim to class, repeating behaviors that would cause a victim to feel fearful, threatened, or harassed, or obsessive attempts at communication via telephone, email, social media, etc.
