Notice of Nondiscriminatory Policy as to Students
The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) admits qualiﬁed students of any race, color, sex, gender, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age, nationality, and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. Furthermore, UMHB does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of handicap in the recruitment and admission of students and the operation of any of its programs and activities, as specified by federal laws and regulations.
UMHB is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students. The university is a private institution and reserves the right to deny admission to an applicant for any lawful reason.
A student or applicant who claims to have been unlawfully discriminated against due to any university regulation or policy or the official action of any university employee should submit a written complaint to the designated coordinator for university compliance with nondiscrimination policies: Susan Owens, Vice President for Human Resources and Title IX Coordinator, Sanderford Administrative Complex, 900 College Street, Belton, Texas 76513, 254-295-4527, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and employees are expected to comply with the university’s policies that prohibit unlawful discrimination, including sexual harassment, gender harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, and stalking whether on or off campus. Any student who witnesses or experiences such conduct on campus or off-campus by someone who is a member of the university community is encouraged to report the matter. Students are encouraged to report such conduct before it becomes severe or pervasive so that the University can take appropriate steps to prevent the situation from creating an environment which is hostile to education.
The University will take appropriate steps to eliminate illegal discrimination or harassment as quickly as possible. In some cases, interim measures may be taken before the investigation and any related disciplinary process has been completed in order to eliminate or diminish the opportunity for additional discrimination or harassment or to alleviate the effects of the conduct which is the subject of the complaint. Any interim measures will respect the rights of all students to be treated with fundamental fairness. More information can be found at www.umhb.edu/titleix.
