第九条/Sexual and Interpersonal Misconduct (SIM) Policy

Policy Overview

East Texas Baptist University does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of 性 in any of its education or employment programs and activities, and it does not tolerate unlawful discrimination or harassment on the basis of 性. This Sexual and Interpersonal Misconduct (SIM) policy prohibits: 1) 性ual harassment as defined by 第九条 (第九条 Sexual Harassment); and 2) certain other 形式 of 性ual and interpersonal misconduct not covered by 第九条 (e.g., certain types of 性ual and gender-based harassment, 性侵犯, 性ual exploitation, 跟踪, intimate partner violence, 报复, and complicity (Non-第九条 Misconduct), collectively referred to in the SIM policy as Prohibited Conduct. These 形式 of Prohibited Conduct are harmful to the well-being of our community and its members, the learning and working environment, and collegial relationships among our students, 教师, 和工作人员.

The University will comply with 第九条 of the Education Amendments of 1972 (第九条), which prohibits discrimination on the basis of 性 in the University's programs and activities; and 第九条 regulations issued in May 2020; the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), as amended by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA); Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Chapter 21 of the Texas Labor Code; Chapter 40, Section 819 of the Texas Administrative Code; pertinent provisions of the Texas Education Code, and other applicable law.

This policy sets forth the procedures that will be used to investigate and respond to reports of Prohibited Conduct.

While East Texas Baptist University encour年龄s students to abide by the University’s Sexuality and Gender Statement, the University recognizes that each student will make independent decisions about their own conduct. The University expects students to reflect Christ-like character, conducting themselves in a manner consistent with biblical principles.  


This policy governs the conduct of East Texas Baptist University students, regardless of enrollment status, 教师, 工作人员, and third parties (i.e., non-members of the University community, such as vendors, alumni/ae, and visitors).

A third party who is accused of violating the SIM policy may be permanently barred from areas and/or activities controlled by the University or be subject to other restrictions for failing to comply with this policy, and may not be granted the full rights and processes afforded to the East Texas Baptist community members through the provisions of this policy.
