Fresno State's Commitment

Fresno State is committed to creating and maintaining a safe learning, living, and working environment where sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking and harassment are impermissible and healthy, respectful behavior represents the campus norm. At Fresno State, primary prevention is our highest goal when addressing sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking. When sexual assault and/or relationship violence does occur, however, we are dedicated to responding in a timely and sensitive manner through the provision of internal and external support resources via campus and community systems.
