SJSU is committed to providing a healthy and safe campus environment, free from all forms of discrimination, harassment and retaliation. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972.
The Title IX Office at San José State has partnered with many departments on campus to enhance education and training and to improve the systems that handle reporting and resolution processes. These improvements include:
To ensure students understand their rights and how the Title IX Office can help them, University Marketing and Communications launched an awareness campaign. The ongoing campaign includes social media, print and video testimonials from student and faculty leaders.
Education and Training
In addition to the mandatory online training for all students and employees, the Title IX Office has conducted more trainings in person in the last academic year on gender and sex-based discrimination and harassment, consent, retaliation and other important concepts.
