Welcome to DIA

The University of Texas at Austin is committed to advancing a diverse, equitable, and supportive campus culture. As part of that commitment, the university created the Department of Investigation and Adjudication (DIA) to investigate allegations of discrimination, harassment, and other prohibited conduct. These claims can involve students, faculty, staff, contractors, applicants, visitors, and other members of the university community. As a neutral investigator, DIA supports the university in fostering a campus environment that is inclusive, respectful, and free from discrimination and harassment.

What DIA Does

The University of Texas at Austin is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and Title IX institution that complies with all applicable federal and state laws. To ensure compliance, DIA investigates alleged violations of the following policies in the university’s Handbook of Operating Procedures (HOP):

These policies protect you from discrimination or harassment based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, citizenship, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. They also protect you from retaliation for reporting a suspected policy violation or participating in an investigation.

You have the right to file a complaint with DIA to raise concerns about discrimination, harassment, or retaliation at The University of Texas at Austin.

Reporting requirement under Texas Senate Bill 212: Any faculty or staff member who learns of an incident involving sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, or stalking committed by or against a student or employee must report it to the university’s Title IX coordinator.

File a Complaint

Any person may report what they believe to be an act of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation at The University of Texas at Austin.
