Prevention, Education, and Awareness

California Baptist University is committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility and mutual respect in a setting that is free of discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes all forms of sexual misconduct. Sex Discrimination violates an individual's fundamental rights and personal dignity. CBU considers Sex Discrimination in all forms to be a serious offense. 

California Baptist University does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities. This policy extends to employment with and admission to the University, as well as to facilities, financial aid, and courses.

Per Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."

Title IX Office

Because CBU recognizes Sex Discrimination as an important issue, the University offers educational programming to Faculty, Staff, and Students. Educational programming includes online training programs that help Students, Faculty, and Staff create a safe and healthy campus community where they take care of themselves, look out for one another, and make choices for the greater good. In addition to distributing information regarding Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Intimate-Partner Violence, and Stalking, the Title IX Coordinator, regularly meets with members of the campus community and conducts trainings that address a variety of topics including: definition of what constitutes Sex Discrimination, the causes of Sex Discrimination, myths involved with Sex Discrimination, the relationship between Sex Discrimination and alcohol use, what to do if assaulted, an explanation of the University Sex Discrimination policy, how to file charges within the University, its conduct system, and/or with the local police department, men’s issues and Sexual Assault, and campus community resources to assist both the Reporting Party and the Respondent.
