Title IX/Sexual Misconduct

The Texas State University System and Lamar State College-Port Arthur are firmly committed to maintaining an educational environment free from all forms of sex discrimination.

Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination and will not be tolerated. Lamar State College-Port Arthur will maintain an environment that promotes prompt reporting of all types of sexual misconduct and timely and fair resolution of sexual misconduct complaints. LSC-PA will take prompt and appropriate action to eliminate sexual misconduct when such is committed, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities. Sexual harassment of students or employees, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.

Lamar State College-Port Arthur is committed to creating an environment free of harassment and discrimination.

Training Requirement

Congress passed legislation that requires new students at all colleges and universities to complete training on sexual assault and violence prevention prior to attending class. All new and transfer LSCPA students must complete the online Title IX/Clery Act Training Course prior to registering for class.

Once a new student is admitted, a link to the online training course “Think About It” from Campus Clarity is sent to the students My.Lamarpa.edu email account. Each student must complete the training course before registering for classes. Failure to complete this training will impact a student’s ability to register for classes. ‘Think About It’ takes approximately two-and-a-half hours to complete. The training course allows the student to work at their own pace and leave the course to return at a later time. When the student returns to the training session, the course will open to the page where you stopped. Upon completion, students should print a Certificate of Completion. LSCPA is also notified when a student successfully completes the course.

Students that need help accessing the training should contact the Registrar's office. Students that need help accessing their My.LamarPA.edu email account should contact the IT Help Desk

Discrimination

Lamar State College-Port Arthur does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, disability, religion, genetic information, veteran status, or age its programs and activities and provides equal access to applicants, employees, and students.
