From the Director

At California State University, San Bernardino, we take Title IX and sexual misconduct very seriously. Our goal is to provide the campus community with education, awareness, reporting options and meaningful assistance. We hope to provide you with information on the California State University Executive Orders 1096 & 1097 reporting procedures for Title IX incidents. Additionally, our goal is to help increase your understanding on what constitutes sexual and interpersonal misconduct, consent, being an effective bystander, and what to do if you or your friend experience sexual or interpersonal misconduct.

This site will provide information on events that continue to bring awareness to, and encourage the prevention of, sexual and interpersonal misconduct at CSUSB. Lastly, the resources given provide a list of available on- and off-campus support to someone who has experienced a Title IX incident.

We invite you to take a few minutes to review our website for information on the resources and programs we offer to assist you. We also invite you stop by the Santos Manuel Student Union, Room 103-A at any time to voice questions, comments or concerns.

Statement of Purpose

Title IX & Gender Equity goal:

 

Oversee the Title IX responsibilities on campus by investigating complaints or allegations of sex/gender/sexual orientation discrimination, harassment or retaliation and acts of sexual violence, while using a variety of CSU Executive Orders, complaint processes and policies, as well as raise awareness on campus.

 


The Title IX Coordinator oversees the CSU protocol regarding Title IX, "a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in an educational institution's academic, educational, extracurricular and athletic activities (both on and off campus)." We follow the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights guidelines by:

  • Upholding the university's obligation to respond to sexual harassment, gender harassment and sexual violence
  • Following CSU policies and complaint procedures
  • Working with designated CSUSB personnel
  • Offering resources and remedies for victims
  • Providing education and training for the campus at large

Title IX Notice of Non-Discrimination on the Basis of Gender or Sex

The California State University does not discriminate on the basis of gender, which includes sex and gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation in its education programs or activities. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and certain other federal and state laws, prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation in employment, as well as in all education programs and activities operated by the University (both on and off campus). The protection against discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation includes sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and gender based dating and domestic violence and stalking.

The following persons have been designated to handle inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policies:
