Equity & Diversity
As you may know, the Chancellor’s Office has engaged Gina Smith and Leslie Gomez of Cozen O’Connor’s Institutional Response Group to conduct a systemwide assessment of the CSU’s implementation of its Title IX & discrimination, harassment, and retaliation (DHR) programs. Cozen O’Connor is conducting an assessment on each of CSU’s 23 campuses, as well as looking at opportunities for systemwide collaboration. The goal of this work is to strengthen CSU’s culture by assessing current practices and providing insights, recommendations, and resources to advance our Title IX and civil rights training, awareness, prevention, intervention, compliance, and support systems.
Next week, Institutional Response Group members Leslie Gomez and Cara Sawyer will be on campus to meet with stakeholders and implementers whose work intersects with Title IX and DHR efforts. Leslie and Cara will also be meeting with students, faculty and staff to share more about the assessment or learn more about their perspectives.
Information shared in the individual meetings with campus stakeholders and constituents will be maintained as private by Cozen O’Connor and will not be shared with Long Beach or CSU leadership with personal attribution. Instead, Cozen O’Connor will seek to identify aggregate themes about our strengths and challenges in our approach to the prevention and response to reports of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
Later this fall, you will have an additional opportunity to participate in a survey where you can share information anonymously or request the opportunity to speak directly with a member of the Cozen O’Connor team. Additionally, any member of the campus community may email Cozen O’Connor directly at CalStateReview@cozen.com.
