Title IX is an education amendment that protects all constituents from unequal treatment on the basis of sex, within all educational and athletic areas, as well as, against all sexual misconduct on all federally funded campuses. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) amendments to the Clery Act expand the rights afforded to campus survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
Colorado State University is committed to intervening in, preventing and eliminating sexual misconduct, gender discrimination, and gender-based violence within the CSU community. The Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity focuses on educating all members of the campus community regarding how to prevent, identify, and report sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, gender discrimination, and gender-based violence. Our office receives complaints of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, gender discrimination, and gender-based violence, conducts investigations of each complaint, and connects those affected with campus and community resources and support.
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” – 1972 Office of Title IX Programs Education Amendment
“The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (Campus SaVE) is a 2013 amendment to the Clery Act signed under the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA). This amendment expanded the reporting requirements on campuses to include domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.”
Colorado State University is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming educational and working environment for everyone where sexual misconduct, sexual assault, gender discrimination, and gender-based violence within the CSU community is not tolerated and is promptly addressed.
