Sexual Assault Prevention-Ongoing Education

Title IX requires higher education institutions to take necessary precautions to prevent sexual assault on their campuses, and to respond promptly and effectively when an assault is reported. To fully comply with Title IX, the CSU Chancellor's Office issued Excecutive Order 1095, which mandates educational training programs to help prevent sexual violence.
