Require All UT Syllabi to Include University Title IX Commitment and Reporting Information

This petition had 131 supporters


I have found that many students do not know where or how to report incidents to the Title IX Coordinator at a university. By requiring the syllabus for each course at the university to include the University Title IX Commitment and the website on where and how to report incidents, the university makes it more accessible for students to report sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and sex discrimination.

This would not be a big change but it could have an important impact on students' lives. It could be as simple as a paragraph and a link included with other student services following the specific class information. But it would be there and the professor would likely go over it some fashion during the early part of the semester. Students need to know that they have the support of their professors and their university while attending classes here.
