Title IX



Title IX of the Education Act of 1972 is a comprehensive federal law which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex or gender. LSU Health Shreveport is committed to providing a learning and working environment that promotes integrity, civility, and mutual respect in an environment free of power-based violence/sexual misconduct (which includes dating/domestic violence, sex discrimination, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, and retaliation). LSU Health Shreveport prohibits power-based violence/sexual misconduct without regard to sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression.

Power-based violence/sexual misconduct violates an individual’s fundamental rights and personal integrity. LSU Health Shreveport encourages you to report incidents of power-based violence/sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator and/or the appropriate law enforcement authority.  

Supportive Measures

LSU Health Shreveport offers supportive measures upon notice of alleged power-based violence, with or without a formal complaint.  Supportive measures are non-punitive services, intended to restore and preserve an individual’s access to programs or activities, without unreasonably burdening another party.  Supportive measures may include, but are not limited to:

  • Counseling, medical, or other healthcare services
  • Campus or local advocacy programs
  • Referral to campus or local law enforcement
  • Services from community-based providers
  • Alternative class or work arrangements
  • A no contact agreement
  • Safety planning
  • Transportation accommodations
  • Student financial aid counseling
  • Visa/immigration assistance
  • Any other actions deemed appropriate by the Title IX Coordinator
