Sexual Harassment & Title IX

Sexual Harassment and Title IX

California State University Stanislaus does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, 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 sex in all education programs and activities operated by the university (both on and off campus).  Title IX protects all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and violence.

The College of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences fosters a learning environment free from sexual/gender harassment or discrimination of any kind.  Students can rely on support and resources for addressing and resolving problems or complaints.

Problem solving steps:

  1. 1st contact – Associate Dean Sari Miller-Antonio, smillerantonio@csustan.edu,(209) 667-3604. This step involves a face to face meeting, discussion, and fact gathering opportunity. It gives the student a chance to be heard but also to listen. If there is no potential for resolution, proceed to step 2.
  2. The Dean of the College may be involved in the conversation at this point, for constructive suggestions to reach consensus and resolve the issue.
  3. The complaint may go on to the Dean of Students for further action and resolution.
