The Alamo Colleges District is committed to providing a supportive learning environment and to fostering, safe, healthy relationships among our students. In this effort, the Alamo Colleges District has initiated AlamoCARES, a prevention, education and support program regarding dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. It is our sincere hope that AlamoCARES will empower you to make well-informed decisions about life issues that affect your college years and beyond.
Within the AlamoCARES site, you will find information on rights granted by Title IX and resources to help educate and assist you when dealing with harassment and sexual violence. Coming soon are events, training and opportunities for bringing awareness to difficult issues and creating discussion opportunities with students.
Title IX and Alamo Colleges Policies
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex (gender) of employees and students of educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance. Title IX's prohibition of discrimination includes acts of sexual harassment and relationship violence.
The Alamo Colleges District does not tolerate sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence of any kind. To ensure compliance with Title IX, the Alamo Colleges District has designated a District Title IX Coordinator and a Deputy Title IX Coordinator at each college.
Filing a Report
Any student or employee who believes he or she has been a victim of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence is encouraged to contact the District Title IX Coordinator or the college Vice President for Student Success.
Filing an External Complaint
The United States Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights enforces Title IX. Any student, employee, or visitors to campus may direct a complaint directly to that office.
