Welcome to the CSUSM Title IX Information CenterCSUSM AGAINST DISCRIMINATION
CSU San Marcos does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation in its education programs or activities. Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all education programs and activities operated by the university (both on and off campus). Title IX protects all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and violence.
WHAT IS TITLE IX
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities which receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:
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 education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
Title IX forbids sex discrimination in all university services and programs. Although often thought of only in terms of athletic programs, Title IX also covers sexual harassment and sexual assault as a form of sex discrimination.
means an adverse action taken against an individual because of gender or sex (including sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking) as prohibited by Title IX; Title IV; VAWA/Campus SaVE Act; California Education Code § 66250 et seq.; and/or California Government Code § 11135. See also Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (Cal. Govt. Code § 12940 et seq.), and other applicable laws. Both men and women can be victims of Sex Discrimination.
