Title IX/Discrimination, Harassment & Retaliation

Title IX Training and Compliance

Required Trainings for Students

Sexual Violence Prevention

All currently enrolled students are required to complete an online Sexual Violence Prevention course. This course educates our campus community about topics surrounding sexual violence, such as sexual misconduct (including sexual assault), dating and relationship violence, sexual harassment, and stalking. In addition to promoting awareness, this course also provides information about reporting options, support measures that can be implemented, and resources available to all students. 

When completing this course, students have the ability to pause or stop progress and return to it at their own pace. If students need additional support while viewing the training (or for any other reason) the Campus Advocate  (call/text 831-402-9477) or 24/7 line (call only): 831-375-4357 is free and fully confidential as a support resource for all students. 

Students are emailed information about accessing this course and are given six weeks to complete the training. If students fail to complete this course within the deadline, a hold is put on their accounts that could prevent them from registering for courses in a future semester. 

Questions about this course, requirements or any holds can be sent to agessler@csumb.edu.

Required Training for Employees

Gender equity and Title IX

Federal law requires all colleges and universities that receive federal financial aid programs to train their faculty and staff on how to recognize sexual misconduct, report incidents to campus authorities and to help maintain an environment free of sexual misconduct. Cal State Monterey Bay employees must complete the Gender Equity and Title IX course through CSULearn annually. The course teaches employees valuable skills for assisting victims and survivors of sexual violence and reporting sexual violence.  Interactive case studies and videos contained in the training provide engaging educational content that explains how to respond to known or suspected sexual violence, which includes sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Campus employees, including student staff, are notified of required training, along with the due date. Training and communication are key to not only helping prevent sexual violence on campus, but also in helping our university to appropriately respond to reports of sexual misconduct and discrimination.
