We Stand Together

At Texas A&M University, we believe sexual harassment and sexual violence have no place in our community or beyond. Aggies have an unwavering commitment to serving others and protecting each other. We hold ourselves to a higher standard through our core values – excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect and selfless service.

It is up to us – students, faculty, and staff – to step in as active participants to end sexual harassment and sexual violence in our community, and stand up to support the survivors of these behaviors. 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
  • Each one of us must be courageous and relentless in defeating sexual assault both on our campus and elsewhere. It is critical that we step in to prevent sexual violence and stand up for survivors. Aggies take care of Aggies. Amy Sharp ’19 Student Body President
