If this is an emergency, and you are on campus, call the LSC Police Department at 281.290.5911 or dial 5911 from any campus phone (832.813.0712 TDD/TTY). If you are off campus, call 911 for immediate assistance.
Title IX is legislation that helps protect individuals from Sexual Harassment, Assault, Violence, and Discrimination.
Under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
The College strives to maintain an educational environment compliant with all applicable anti-discrimination laws, including all laws outlawing discrimination arising from: sexual harassment, sexual violence, race, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic or national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other protected status. Unlawful academic discrimination by officers, managers, faculty, supervisors, employees, students, advisors, vendors, clients, or contractors will not be tolerated.
Retaliating against anyone who complains about discrimination as defined in this policy is also unlawful. Moreover, retaliating against anyone for cooperating in an investigation initiated to discover any of the prohibited conduct identified in the prior paragraph, whether internal or external, is also unlawful and contrary to the College’s policies.
An essential component in fulfilling the Lone Star College mission is to create a safe and supportive learning environment for all students. In order to fulfill LSC’s mission and comply with federal and state requirements, all new students will be required to complete the New LSC Student Campus Health, Safety, and Risk-Management Awareness (CHSRMA) Online Modules. These modules include education and information on Campus Sexual Assault, Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention, as well as Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
