Title IX Office Overview

Pursuant to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the U.S. Department of Education’s implementing regulations at 34 C.F.R. Part 106, UT Health San Antonio’s Title IX Coordinator has primary responsibility for coordinating UT Health San Antonio’s efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities under Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination in all the operations of UT Health San Antonio, as well as retaliation for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured by Title IX.
