Title IX is a federal law that states, "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" (20 U.S.C. § 1681).

Criminal Reports:

The CSULB University Police Department and any law enforcement agency must notify victims of sexual violence that their name will become a matter of public record unless they request confidentiality. If the request is made, the police will not divulge the victim's identity to anyone including the Title IX Coordinator. However, they will report the facts of the case to the Title IX Coordinator.

CSULB does not discriminate on the basis of sex and gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation in its education programs or activities. Title IX prohibits 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.

CSULB is committed to creating and sustaining an educational and working environment free of sexual misconduct, dating and domestic violence, and stalking. If you experience any of these forms of misconduct, you are strongly encouraged to utilize the various on and off-campus resources.
