Help for Sexual Misconduct & Sexual Assault

Reporting Sexual Misconduct

Anyone can report incidents of sexual misconduct to Xavier Academy by contacting the administration at 832-533-2652 ext. 1011 or the Director of Schools at 832-533-2652 ext. 1003. Talking to any responsible employee (all faculty, staff, and administrators) also initiates the reporting process, as those individuals are required to share your report with the Director of Schools.

To speak confidentially with someone before deciding whether to initiate the reporting process, you may contact the Wellness Center by walking into the center during Wellness Center Hours. After hours, you may contact the 24/7 Wellness Center Hotline at 210-464-4556. After hours, you may contact the Wellness Center at 210-464-4556, say it is a confidential emergency, and ask to speak with a counselor.


Sexual Misconduct Resources and Reporting

Sexual misconduct violates the dignity of individuals and will not be tolerated within our community. It is a form of discrimination based on sex or gender that violates the law and is prohibited by Xavier Academy policy. Sexual misconduct is any non-consensual sexual contact between individuals, including but not limited to unwanted sexual touching and/or sexual intercourse.

Tell any Responsible Employee (all faculty, staff, and administrators), required to share your report with the Director of Schools.

Reporting an incident to campus authorities initiates an inquiry. If the reporting party requests not to pursue the matter through Xavier Academy’s disciplinary process, Xavier can NOT honor that request. A full investigation must be conducted.

Interim measures, such as no-contact orders, may be put in place whether or not an investigation is underway.

An investigator (Director of Schools or designee) conducts an investigation. All parties involved in or witness to the alleged violation are interviewed, and evidence is gathered. The matter will be referred to local law enforcement. 

Students found responsible for violations of Xavier Academy’s sexual misconduct policy are sanctioned according to the nature and severity of the incident. Probation, suspension, and expulsion are possible sanctions.


Dial 9-1-1 to report an emergency

Dial 713-884-3131 to request non-emergency police service for locations within the city limits of Houston.

City of Houston Police Department:  713-528-RAPE (7273)

Reporting an incident to the local police sets in motion an investigation that is pursued (or not) fully at the discretion of the district/county attorney.

A student may choose to make a report both on campus and off campus, in which case two separate and unrelated processes will be conducted, one by the University and one by local law enforcement.
