Student Grievances 

A student-related dispute could arise out of a decision or action, in the course of official duty by a member of the faculty, staff, or administration of California State University, Fresno. The decision or action could be alleged as discriminatory, contrary to accepted academic relationships and procedures, or restrictive of the rights of
any student of the university to fair treatment. The dispute
resolution process provides a mechanism for students to have a third party review the situation. The student must first make a good faith effort to resolve the matter informally by talking directly with the individual concerned, the individual’s direct supervisor or department chair, and the director of the unit or college/school dean. If
resolution is not effective through the informal procedures, for assistance, the student should contact the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students.

Harassment/Sexual Harassment
Discrimination on the basis of sex is prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act as well as Title IX of the Education Act. Sexual harassment is a violation of Section 703 of Title VII. Sexual harassment refers to the unwanted imposition of sexual attention usually in the context of a relationship of unequal power, rank, or status, as well as the use of one's position of authority in the university to bestow benefits or impose deprivations on another.

Sexual harassment, or other harassment based on a person's "protected status," includes verbal, nonverbal, and/or physical conduct that has the intent or effect of unreasonable interference with individuals' or groups' education or work performance. This may also include actions that create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or learning environment. Both men and women can be the victims of sexual harassment or harassment based on a "protected status."
