The intent of Crossroads (formerly known as Salutations) is to inform students about common issues related to sexual misconduct. Crossroads aims to help students understand their rights and responsibilities under the Sexual Misconduct Policy as well as provide students with useful information associated with sexual misconduct, including how and to whom they can report an incident.
To comply with the legal mandates that require the University of Houston System to provide training on the topic of sexual violence, Crossroads must be completed by all new students during their first semester of enrollment. To accomplish this,
a hold will be placed on all new student's enrollment until they have successfully completed the Crossroads training module. Complete the Crossroads training.
In addition, the policy of the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) is to ensure equal opportunity in all its educational programs and activities, and all terms and conditions of employment without regard to age, race, color, disability, religion, national origin, veteran's status, genetic information, or sex (including pregnancy), except where such a distinction is required by law. Additionally, UHD prohibits discrimination in all aspects of employment and educational programs on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
