Executive Order 1095

The CSU, through its chancellor and presidents, is committed to creating an atmosphere in which all Students have the right to participate fully in CSU programs and activities free from unlawful Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation.

This policy is established in compliance with the California Equity in Higher Education Act (Education Code §66250 et seq.), Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, among other applicable state and federal laws.

It is CSU policy that no Student shall, on the basis of any Protected Status, be unlawfully excluded from participation in, or be denied the benefits of, any CSU program or activity. Nor shall a Student be otherwise subjected to unlawful Discrimination, Harassment, or Retaliation for exercising any rights under this executive order.

Except in the case of a privilege recognized under California law (examples of which include Evidence Code §§1014 (psychotherapist-patient); 1035.8 (sexual assault counselor-victim); and 1037.5 (domestic violence counselor-victim)), any member of the University community who knows of, or has reason to know of, allegations or acts that violate this policy, shall promptly inform the CSUSM Title IX Coordinator Bridget Blanshan (bblansha@csusm.edu or (760) 750-4056).

Employees and Students who violate this policy may be subject to discipline. If employee discipline is appropriate, it shall be administered in a manner consistent with applicable collective bargaining agreements, CSU policies, and legal requirements. Student discipline shall be administered in accordance with §41301 of Title 5, California Code of Regulations and Executive Order 1098, or any superseding executive order, if applicable.
