A Safe Campus Starts With You
Help keep SJSU free from sexual harassment, sex discrimination and gender inequity of all types. SJSU's Title IX and Gender Equity Office is committed to protecting all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, stalking, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions.
Reporting a Title IX Incident
If you or someone you know has experienced sex discrimination or sexual misconduct, we encourage you to file a report or contact the Title IX and Gender Equity Office for resources and assistance.
Title IX at SJSU
An important distinction between a “report” and a “complaint.” A report (any information suspected of Title IX misconduct) can be made directly by a complainant or by anyone else who wants to share information with the Title IX Office. If the person then submits a complaint, we commence an investigation in every instance where there is a possible violation of the CSU Nondiscrimination Policy. We generally only initiate an investigation upon request. Therefore, the number of reports reflected in the data is greater than the number of investigations opened by the Title IX Office.
