Sexual Misconduct & Title IX
The Texas State University System and Lamar State College Orange are firmly committed to maintaining an educational environment free from all forms of sex discrimination. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination and will not be tolerated. Lamar State College Orange will maintain an environment that promotes prompt reporting of all types of sexual misconduct and timely and fair resolution of sexual misconduct complaints. LSCO will take prompt and appropriate action to eliminate sexual misconduct when such is committed, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities. Sexual harassment of students or employees, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Lamar State College Orange is committed to creating an environment free of harassment and discrimination.
Lamar State College Orange does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, disability, religion, genetic information, veteran status, or age. Its programs and activities provide equal access to applicants, employees, and students.
Where to Report
Anonymous Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Reporting
Lamar State College Orange has adopted STOP!T, a technology platform that will help mitigate, deter, and control harmful and inappropriate behavior as well as help create a positive and safe learning environment for our campus community. STOP!T will be an integral part of our effort to deter and mitigate risks associated with sexual harassment and assault, Title IX, the Clery Act, hazing, violence, and other threats to student safety.
STOP!T provides a mobile app, allowing students immediate access to the reporting platform.
