Interpersonal Violence and/or Sexual Assault

Where to go when you need help feeling safe.

On Campus Resources:

  • Title IX Office: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination. Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMUCC) is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination, including discrimination based upon sex. TAMUCC provides resources to students, faculty, and staff to address concerns related to sexual harassment, sexual assault (rape), sexual misconduct, sex discrimination and has appointed Mr. Samuel Ramirez as its Title IX Coordinator.


  • Office of the Associate Dean of Students: The OADS serves as an advocate for students by connecting them to campus and community resources and services such as CASA, Counseling and Health Center, Disability Services, Career Services, Student Conduct & Community Standards, I-CARE and more.


  • Confidential Reporting: If you wish to speak to someone regarding a sexual misconduct matter and you would like the conversation to remain confidential, the following offices are available to serve you:
    • University Counseling Center:
    • University Health Center:

Please note that if you wish for the University to open an official investigation into the matter, confidential reporting is highly unlikely to result in that outcome.
