Report 2013-124: Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence: California Universities Must Better Protect Students by Doing More to Prevent, Respond to, and Resolve Incidents (Release Date: June 2014)

Recommendation #34 To: Chico, California State University

All universities should appropriately post the university's policy on sexual harassment. The policy should be posted prominently in the university's main administrative building and in other areas on campus where notices are posted, including key locations such as residence halls and athletic facilities. Similarly, the notice of nondiscrimination should be posted prominently throughout the university. If, because of the length of the policy on sexual harassment, it is not effective to post it in its entirety, the universities should post summary information that explains how students can access the full policy.

60-Day Agency Response

In order to ensure appropriate distribution of the university's written policy on sexual harassment the university has taken the following measures:

Posted Executive Order 1095 along with its Attachments A (Notice of Non-Discrimination on the Basis of Gender or Sex) and C (Rights and Options for Victims) in the following areas along with a poster summarizing these documents.

- Administration Building

- Residence Halls

- Student Union

- WREC Center

- Athletics

- Student Health Center

- Student Services Center

The University will continue to rely most heavily on the online version of the policies, as that has proven to be the most accessed and accessible format for dissemination.
