Executive Order 1072: Implementation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Related Sexual Harassment/Violence Legislation for CSU Students 12-13Each CSU campus is required to post a Title IX notice of nondiscrimination on the basis
of sex prominently on its website and in electronic and printed publications of general
distribution. Campuses must also post the notice in a prominent location on campus,
such as in the main administration building or other locations where other notices
regarding campus rules, regulations, procedures and standards of conduct are posted.

including sexual harassment and violence, and that such conduct is prohibited sex
discrimination. ..."Sexual Harassment" is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that includes, but
is not limited to: sexual violence; sexual advances; requests for sexual favors;
indecent exposure; and other verbal, nonverbal or physical unwelcome conduct of
a sexual nature, where such conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive

person in the shoes of the individual, and is in fact considered by the individual,
as limiting the individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services,
activities or opportunities offered by the university. Sexual harassment also
includes gender-based harassment, which may include acts of verbal, non-verbal
or physical aggression, intimidation or hostility based on sex or sex-stereotyping,
