Title IX

Title IX protects people from disc​rimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive financial assistance from the federal government. This includes protection for students, educators and school employees against all forms of sex or gender discrimination, including sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, other forms of sexual misconduct, stalking and retaliation.

The safety and well-being of our campus communities is a priority for the California State University. We are committed to ensuring a safe working and learning environment at every campus. The CSU was the first university system in the country to appoint a dedicated systemwide Title IX Compliance Officer to actively address issues related to sex discrimination and sexual violence.Students or staff experiencing discrimination based on sex or gender should contact their campus Title IX office.

In 2014, the CSU appointed the country’s first systemwide Title IX Compliance Officer as part of an increased commitment to ensuring student equity while also preventing sexual violence across our 23 campuses. The Title IX Compliance Officer works to end sex discrimination and sexual violence within the CSU by coordinating with campus officials and systemwide specialists to guarantee Title IX policy, programs and awareness campaigns are up-to-date and effective.
