Title IX: Addressing Sexual Misconduct & Gender-Based Discrimination

California State University Northridge is committed to fostering an environment in which all members of our campus community are safe and free from sexual misconduct of any form. The University does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, or sexual orientation in its education programs or activities. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and certain other federal and state laws, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in all education programs and activities operated by the university (both on and off campus).  Title IX protects all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and sexual violence.

President Harrison's Statement (September 2017):  Unwavering Commitment to Title IX
