Sexual misconduct in any form (including sexual violence) is also not tolerated. 

Retaliation against individuals who oppose discriminatory practices, file a charge or complaint of discrimination, or testify for, assist in, or participate in an investigative proceeding relating to discrimination is also prohibited under this policy.

Please refer to the UTRGV Non Discrimination and Complaint Procedure for more information.
