Title IX Annual Report
Gender or Sex Based Discrimination and Title IX
Stanislaus State is committed to promoting inclusive excellence and equal access to education and employment for all students and employees. Part of that commitment is a dedication to the efforts of Title IX, a federal law requiring nondiscrimination on the basis of gender and sex at educational institutions, and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, a federal act that aims to prevent gender-based and sexual violence and harassment, as well as requiring that educational institutions respond when it occurs. Another law that shapes Stan State’s commitment to equity and inclusion is the Student Safety: Sexual Assault law which defines the affirmative consent standard for California schools.
Gender or sex based discrimination and sexual misconduct are serious offenses that violate fundamental rights and personal dignity. We offer numerous support and reporting options for victims of gender or sex based discrimination and sexual misconduct. Even if you are not a victim, you can help by reporting such incidents.
