We Stand Together

As Texas A&M University, we believe sexual harassment and sexual violence has no place in our states, cities, universities or our country. Aggies have an unwavering commitment to serving others and protecting each other. We hold ourselves to a higher standard through our core values – like integrity, respect and selfless service.

It is up to us – students, faculty, staff and the rest of the Aggie community – to step in as active participants to reduce the incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence on our campus, and stand up against it by starting courageous conversations and sharing information. What harms even one of us, harms us all.

  • Our highest priority at Texas A&M is to provide a safe and welcoming campus where our students can grow and develop as leaders. When one of us is harmed through sexual violence, each of us is harmed. Even one such incident is too many. - Michael K. Young President, Texas A&M University
