California State University, East Bay is committed to creating and maintaining an educational, working, and living environment free from all forms of harassment and sexual misconduct. The University’s policies prohibit such harassment and misconduct and apply to all members of the University community.
The procedures are provided here for required notification and reporting to sponsoring federal agencies.At present, this procedure addresses NIH, NSF, and USDA NIFA reporting only. However, the University may have other legal or contractual obligations to report harassment or sexual misconduct to third parties, e.g., to other government agencies or sponsors in connection with specific awards or collaborations, and will act in accordance with those obligations. Also, the University anticipates that additional funding agencies or organizations may adopt similar comprehensive notification requirements. The University may update this procedure as necessary to address such additional notification requirements.
The University is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of victim/survivors of sexual assault. A student who has been a victim of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, including sexual misconduct, may request academic accommodation or change in residence after a report of sexual misconduct. Any individual who makes a request will receive appropriate and reasonable accommodations.
Possible accommodations may include the ability to change academic schedules or campus work schedules, withdraw from or retake a class without penalty, extensions on assignments and exams, and excused absences from class.
Pursuant to Title IX, in most cases of sexual violence or sex discrimination, the University will endeavor, to the extent practicable, to change the schedule or accommodations of the accused student prior to changing the schedule or accommodations of the victim.
In situations where it is necessary, the University will take immediate steps to protect complainants and respondents pending and after the final outcome of an investigation. These steps include the accommodations listed above and a change of residence hall assignments in addition to issuing no contact directives. Pending resolution of the complaint, the respondent may be prohibited from contacting the complainant, and may be placed on suspension or denied access to campus. The University may also change the course schedule for the respondent for student conduct disciplinary procedures related to acts of sexual misconduct.
Update Regarding the Title IX Annual Report for 2022-2023
In response to feedback from Cozen O’Connor following their assessment of the CSU’s Title IX and Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation (DHR) programs and from the California State Auditor following their audit of the CSU’s system to assess the CSU’s handling of sexual harassment complaints against employees at the Office of the Chancellor (Chancellor’s Office), California State University, Fresno, San José State University, and Sonoma State University the CSU Chancellor’s Office is refining the categories of Title IX data it gathers to ensure the accuracy of campus Title IX Annual Reports and to facilitate more precise analysis and identification of patterns and trends. While the CO works to update the data queries, CSU campuses will defer issuing Title IX Annual Reports until the Chancellor’s Office finalizes new guidance for data collection and reporting.
During this time, all CSU campuses will continue to issue the Annual Security Report, accessible for East Bay at Campus Annual Security Report, in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act). This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning Clery Act defined crimes that were reported to have occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the CSU, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. This report includes, but is not limited to, reported incidents of sexual assault (including rape, fondling, incest, and statutory rape), domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Please note that the data in the Annual Security Report differs from the data that has historically been reported in a campus’s Title IX Annual Report due to the specific definitional and geographical parameters required for Clery statistics."
