If you, or someone you care about, have been the victim of misconduct such as sexual assault, interpersonal violence, stalking, or harassment, we want you to know that you are not alone. Texas Tech provides resources to students, faculty, and staff, regardless of a decision to pursue a formal investigation. The university is committed to walking you through the process and assisting with your needs. A summary of services is provided below, but we encourage you to call RISE at (806) 742-2110 if you have any further questions or would like to speak to someone in person.
A comprehensive explanation of the university's policies, procedures, and resources related to Title IX can be found on the Title IX homepage, here. You can also file a report online through this page, or set up an appointment to make a report in person.
Campus Climate Incident Report Form
Not sure if your experience fits a Title IX complaint? You can also make a report through the Climate Report Form on this site, or in person in the RISE Office.
Need immediate assistance, especially after hours? Call the Texas Tech Crisis HelpLine at (806) 742-5555 to speak to a licensed mental health professional, 24/7/365.
Staff in the RISE Office are available to serve as Support Coordinators for students who have experienced Title IX misconduct (sexual assault, interpersonal violence, stalking). These Coordinators are available to assist students throughout the aftermath of an incident, regardless of whether you choose to pursue investigation. Coordinators can assist in the reporting process and with student accommodations. To learn more about what we do, download this handout. You can also share this information with a friend that may be unsure of what to do next.
Support Coordinators are only available to assist with the reporting party ('victim'). The respondent ('alleged') may access services through the Dean of Students Office.
