Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on the sex or gender of students and employees at educational institutions that receive federal financial assistance. Title IX 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)."

Title IX is best known for ensuring gender equity in collegiate athletics, but it also broadly prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender or sex in any education program or activity. Sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking also fall under the purview of Title IX.

CSUDH's Office of Equity & Inclusion

CSUDH's Office of Equity and Inclusion promotes inclusive excellence by ensuring equal access to education and employment for the CSUDH community. The Office of Equity and Inclusion promotes prevention education and provides a response to incidents that occur and complaints made by students and employees.

The California State University, including CSUDH, does not discriminate on the basis of gender, which includes sex and gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation, in its education programs or activities. Title IX and certain other federal and state laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation in employment, as well as in all education programs and activities operated by its universities (both on and off campus).

CSUDH is committed to creating and sustaining an educational and working environment free of sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. If you experience any of these forms of misconduct, you are strongly encouraged to inform the Office of Equity and Inclusion by filling out the online form or calling (310) 243-1025.
