NONDISCRIMINATION IN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES
Educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance are required to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These federal laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, including sexual harassment and sexual violence; sexual orientation; genetic information; race; color; religion; national origin; age; veteran status; and disability in the education programs and activities that they operate. Vet Tech Institute of Houston is subject to these laws and complies fully with them in the enrollment of students, the hiring of faculty and staff, and in all other activities of the school. The Director/Chief Academic Officer, who is identified in the Administration, Faculty, and Staff section of this catalog and who may be reached by phone at 713- 629-1500, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail or in person at 4669 Southwest Freeway, Suite 100, Houston, TX 77027, is the Title IX Coordinator at Vet Tech Institute of Houston. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the Title IX Coordinator or to the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights. Students are encouraged to bring any complaints or reports of discrimination to the coordinator’s attention. Employees who in the course and scope of their employment witness or receive information about an incident that the employee reasonably believes to constitute sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking against a student or employee must promptly report the incident to the institution’s Title IX coordinator. Such a report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or electronic mail address or by mail to the office address listed for the Title IX Coordinator. The matter will be investigated promptly, and both parties -4- will be notified in writing about the outcome of the complaint. Appropriate follow-up will be implemented to assure that no person associated with the school is subjected to unlawful discrimination. Individuals who report discrimination will not be subjected to any retaliation for doing so.
