To report an incident, please contact the Title IX coordinator, confidential advocate, or for a list of resources or more information, please visit the Title IX website.

A summary of the reporting process (in cases alleging Sex Discrimination) is outlined below. Please reference the full CSU Nondiscrimination Policy policy for details.

  • Filing a Report. The Student shall submit a written report to the Title IX Coordinator. The date of receipt shall be deemed to be the report filing date. The Title IX Coordinator shall offer reasonable accommodations to students who are unable to submit a written report because of disability.
  • Timeline for filing a Report. Complaints should be brought forward as soon as possible after the conduct occurs. While there is no stated time frame for making a Complaint, prompt reporting will better enable the Campus to respond to the Complaint, determine the relevant issues, and provide an appropriate remedy and/or action. All incidents should be reported even if a significant amount of time has passed. However, delaying a report or Complaint may impede the ability to conduct an investigation or take appropriate remedial actions.
  • Report Requirements. The Student should complete the incident report.
  • Intake Interview. The Title IX Coordinator (or designee) shall meet with the Student as soon as possible, but no later than 10 Working Days after the report was received. The meeting shall serve as the initial intake interview and will: (a) acquaint the Student with the investigation procedure and timelines; (b) inform the Student of their rights (including having an advisor throughout the process); (c) provide the opportunity for the Student to complete and sign a complaint form, if not already done; and (d) discuss Interim Remedies, as appropriate.
  • Confidentiality. Information regarding the report shall be shared with other University employees and law enforcement exclusively on a "need to know" basis.
  • Investigation Procedure. The Student and the Accused shall have equal opportunities to present relevant witnesses and evidence in connection with the investigation. The investigation shall be completed no later than 100 Working Days after the intake interview, unless the timeline has been extended pursuant to Article VIII. E or F. Upon inquiry, the Complainant and Accused shall be advised of the status of the investigation.
  • Investigative Report. Within the investigation period stated above, the Investigator shall prepare an investigative report. The report shall include a summary of the allegations, the investigative process, the Preponderance of the Evidence standard, the evidence considered, and appropriate findings.
  • Notice of Investigation Outcome. The Title IX Coordinator (or designee) shall notify the Student in writing of the investigation outcome within 10 Working Days of completing the report. Where a report is made against another Student, the Title IX Coordinator shall also notify the Campus Student Conduct Administrator of the investigation outcome. If the outcome is that this Non-Discrimination Policy was not violated, the notice shall inform the Complainant of their right to file an appeal under Article VII. A separate written notice shall be provided to the Accused indicating whether or not the allegations at Level I were substantiated. The Accused shall also be informed of the Complainant's right to file an appeal.

Please reference the policy for information regarding the appeal process.
