Title IX Policy
CHSU is committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive environment, where all individuals can achieve their academic and professional aspirations free from sexual misconduct, and other forms of unlawful discrimination, harassment, or related retaliation. The purpose of this policy is to explain the prohibited conduct related to sexual misconduct, and other forms of unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation; and outline the process by which CHSU processes complaints regarding sexual misconduct, unlawful discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation.
It is important for individuals to understand their Title IX rights and responsibilities to help prevent harassment and discrimination, and foster a safe and respectful campus culture. Below are a few training materials for faculty, staff, students and other members of our campus community.
The purpose of the CHSU Concern Form is to provide a process for any member of the CHSU community or public to notify the University regarding any concern or complaint related to the University’s programs, activities or operations. The Concern Form may be used for any level of concern or complaint, including rather simple matters such as notification of a minor facility concern, or more complex matters such as concerns related to the University’s COVID-19 response, whistleblower reports or to report allegations of illegal harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct or Title IX Sexual Harassment.
