Our Commitment, Our Responsibility: Together For A Safe, Ethical Campus

Our commitment to maintaining a safe, ethical and inclusive campus environment is unwavering. We believe that a safe and ethical campus is not only a responsibility; it's a collective effort that requires all of us to work together.

As employees, each of us play a vital role in shaping the future of our campus, and that starts with staying informed and up-to-date on our mandatory compliance training. Log in to CSULearn TODAY!

Remember, "Our Commitment, Our Responsibility, Together for a Safe, Ethical Campus" isn't just a tagline; it's a call to action. When you receive notice that a required training is due, it's essential to make the time to complete it before the deadline. Failure to complete these mandatory trainings not only jeopardizes the safety and ethical standing of our campus but may also have consequences for your professional standing.
