What is Title IX?


It’s only 37 words created in 1972: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

This Federal policy enables educational institutions to investigate reports of interpersonal violence. However, there have been many changes to this law through time. Stay up to date through Know Your IX!

You have the right to report interpersonal violence to your university.
CSU responds to reports of sexual assault and harassment, dating and domestic violence, and stalking. You can connect with a SAFE Center advocate to learn more about the process, and for ongoing support should you choose to report.

You can self report to the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity here.

Most staff and faculty members on campus are Responsible Employees, which means they are required to report information they hear about interpersonal violence to the Office of Title IX Programs. Students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to reach out to SAFE advocates or the Office of Title IX for more information.

Responsible employees report online, as well.
