Title IX Implementation
Building a campus culture of trust and safety
To ensure accountability and transparency among the Fresno State campus community, in February 2022 President Jiménez-Sandoval created a Title IX Task Force to provide guidance on implementing holistic responses to confronting sexual and gender-based harassment. To strengthen its larger systems of care and compliance, in 2022 and 2023 the CSU Board of Trustees commissioned the Cozen O’Connor law firm to conduct a comprehensive systemwide assessment of the university’s implementation of its Title IX and other anti-discrimination programs following concerning reports of sexual harassment and other misconduct. Fresno State’s Title IX Task Force worked in partnership with Cozen O’Connor to produce a campus-specific report of recommendations while Cozen O’Connor also worked with the Chancellor’s Office and each of the CSU’s universities to produce a systemwide report that also includes individual campus reports.
