Child Protection Training 

This training is derived from Texas State Statutes which include Senate Bill 1414 as well as policies found within Sul Ross State University and the Texas State University System. 

Equal Employment Opportunity Training

Employment Discrimination Training for all state employees is required by law. The law requires each state agency to provide employees an employment discrimination training program that complies with the Texas Labor Code Chapter 21. The training program must provide the employee with information regarding the agency’s policies and procedures relating to employment discrimination, including employment discrimination involving sexual harassment.

Title IX Compliance Training

Sul Ross State University is committed to providing a safe and healthy campus community.  As part of that commitment and in compliance with Title IX regulations from the Federal Government, Sul Ross and the Texas State University System has created an online training through Blackboard.  The Texas State University System (TSUS) has requested that all Faculty and Staff are trained for Title IX Compliance and are aware of the Sexual Misconduct Policy in the Sul Ross State University Administrative Policy Manual.  The training is also designed to raise awareness of our individual responsibilities in reporting any Title IX violations.

Title IX as defined by the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination in education and encompasses sexual misconduct including sexual harassment and sexual assault. Although frequently believed to only pertain to athletics, Title IX is a broad and expansive law that applies to many programs at Sul Ross State University.
