As a new California State University San Marcos Unit 11 employee, you will need to sign an oath of allegiance before you begin your employment. The oath requires public employees to make a declaration of loyalty to the government of the State of California and the United States of America. The oath requirement only applies to U.S. citizens.
"I, ______, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter."
The loyalty oath is included in the Personnel Information Sheet that you will complete as a part of the sign in process with The Office of Human Resources. Signing the oath does not carry with it any obligation or requirement that public employees bear arms or otherwise engage in violence.
