Sex Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Violence
The University of Dallas does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational
and employment programs and activities, and it does not tolerate discrimination or
harassment on the basis of sex. University policy prohibits sex-based discrimination and harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation,
intimate partner violence, stalking, and retaliation ("prohibited conduct").

Every individual, precisely by reason of the mystery of the Word of God who was made
flesh (cf. Jn 1:14), is entrusted to the maternal care of the Church. Therefore every
threat to human dignity and life must necessarily be felt in the Church's very heart;
it cannot but affect her at the core of her faith in the Redemptive Incarnation of
the Son of God, and engage her in her mission of proclaiming the Gospel of life in
all the world and to every creature (cf. Mk 16:15). - St. John Paul II, Evangelium vitae, no. 3
Our first priority is to provide and connect victims of prohibited conduct with the
resources they may need as they work through a difficult time. While the University
encourages all possible victims of prohibited conduct to report the incident to the
Title IX/Section 504 Coordinator, we recognize that sometimes a person may want to
seek confidential assistance. The University has designated various "confidential reporters" who members of the University community can go to in order to get information and
support, without the details of their report being relayed to the Title IX/Section
504 Coordinator for possible investigation. The following employees are confidential
- On-campus licensed professional counselors and staff
- On-campus health service providers and staff
- Vowed religious (priests, deacons, and religious sisters and brothers), including
the University Chaplain, when providing pastoral services
- Staff in the Office of Campus Ministry
Reporting Prohibited Conduct
Reports of prohibited conduct may be made in many different ways. There is no time
limitation on the filing of allegations. However, if the person alleged to have committed
the prohibited conduct is no longer subject to the University's jurisdiction, its
ability to investigate, respond, and provide remedies may be more limited.
- You may report directly to the Title IX/Section 504 Coordinator or the Deputy Title
- You may report any complaint, including an anonymous complaint, using the online reporting
form posted at udallas.edu/complaint and https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/media/en/gui/19779/index.html, or by calling toll-free to the University’s Compliance Reporting Hotline at (888)
- You may report a complaint to various other individuals and offices on and off campus.
Except for specifically designated "confidential reporters," all employees of the
University (faculty and staff) are expected to relay complaints and allegations of
prohibited conduct to the Title IX/Section 504 Coordinator.
The University always seeks to maintain the privacy of those involved in the reporting
and complaint process, keeping in mind the University's obligation to protect the
entire University community.
Title IX and Deputy Title IX Coordinators
The Title IX/Section 504 Coordinator is the person designated by the University to
oversee implementation of the University's policies regarding prohibited conduct,
