Title IX for Students
Fresno State does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, or sexual orientation in the education programs or activities it conducts. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and certain other federal and state laws, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in all education programs and activities operated by the university (both on and off campus).This university is dedicated to providing equal opportunities to male and female students in all campus programs, including intercollegiate athletics and carries out its educational mission in accordance with the California State University’s (CSU) Notice of Non-discrimination on the basis of sex.
In the interests of preserving each student’s right to learn and maintaining a safe and respectful educational atmosphere for all campus community members, it is important that each member be familiar with Fresno State’s Title IX policies and know how to identify acts of sexual discrimination/harassment.
Title IX protects all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is any unwelcome and/or uninvited verbal or physical conduct directed towards a person because of his or her sex. An act of sexual violence is any physical sexual act perpetrated against a person’s will, and constitutes sexual harassment.
