Executive Order 1095 includes three attachments: Attachment A: Notice of Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Gender or Sex, Attachment B: Myths and Facts about Sexual Misconduct, and Attachment C: Notice of Rights and Options for Victims of Sexual Misconduct, Dating and Domestic Violence and Stalking. All of these attachments, along with the information below, can be found at the Title 9 website.

  • What you should do if you have been the victim of or witness to these acts

Domestic Travel with Student Organizations

Faculty or Staff advisors organizing travel with these student clubs, associations, organizations, or Greek societies must follow the following steps before travel begins:

  1. Notify Student Life & Leadership that travel with a student organization will occur. This will allow the contact to keep an eye out for paperwork.
  2. Have each participant execute a Release and Student Conduct Agreement prior to traveling.  Please note that minors’ parents must execute the Release.  Unless these forms are executed and returned, CSUSM will not authorize, support or fund travel.
  3. Inform the Student Life & Leadership Coordinator when the Release and Guidelines have been executed.
  4. Email a scanned copy of each executed release to the University Police Department. Ensure the relevant organization retains the original executed releases.
