Title IX/Discrimination, Harassment & Retaliation

Commitment to Change

To strengthen its systems of care and compliance, in 2022 and 2023 the California State University engaged the Cozen O’Connor Institutional Response Group to conduct a systemwide assessment of its Title IX and Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation (DHR) programs.
