Upon admission, students automatically become members of the University community and assume full responsibility for proper conduct until their separation from the institution. Misconduct at the University is not tolerated as it diminishes the overall value of the degrees awarded by Texas A&M University-San Antonio. All students at the University should be involved in assuring the honesty of all students through their own individual actions and deeds.
Since students serve as representatives of the university, inappropriate behavior will be investigated and adjudicated in a manner pursuant with A&M-SA’s educational and community development goals. Conduct standards at the University are set forth in writing, in the Student Code of Conduct, in order to give students general notice of prohibited conduct.

When describing an incident: please describe the incident with as much detail as possible and use specific, concise, objective language. Focus on the Who, What, When, Where, How, and Why of the incident. Indicate specific people, words, phrases, and interactions. Please try use specific names instead of pronouns (he, she, etc.) when referring to people in the body of the report. When possible, we encourage the use of direct quotes, even in incidents when the language may be profane or abusive. For example, “Joe Jaguar shook his fist at me and said ‘you are a stupid loser’” is more helpful than “Joe Jaguar was threatening and used aggressive language with me.”

Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance.
Sexual harassment, including sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination and is therefore prohibited under Title IX. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct is so severe, persistent or pervasive that it explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work or educational performance, or creates an intimidating or hostile work or educational environment.
Texas A&M -San Antonio is committed to providing an environment of academic study and employment free from harassment or discrimination to all segments of its community; its faculty, staff, students, guests and vendors; and will promptly address all complaints of discrimination, sexual harassment, and related retaliation in accordance with applicable federal and state laws.
