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.
If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination or harassment of any form covered under the protections afforded by Title IX, including sexual assault, you should contact our Title IX Coordinator and D/H/R Administrator Dennis Shimek to discuss your situation. More broadly, anyone who knows or suspects that an employee or student is being subjected to discrimination or harassment, including sexual assault, should report that information to our Title IX Coordinator and D/H/R Administrator Dennis Shimek.
