You are Not Alone and We Listen
This is San Jose State's main portal for resources, reporting options and information for victims of sexual misconduct and violence, and serves as an educational tool for our campus community to learn how to support victims and learn more about the university's Title IX policies and procedures for addressing sexual misconduct.
To learn more, read the university's Title IX report for 2016-'17.
New NCAA Policy on Campus Sexual Violence
The NCAA has adopted a policy on campus sexual violence, effective immediately for the 2017-'18 school year, that requires coaches, college athletes and athletics administrators to complete education each year in sexual violence prevention.
San Jose State conducted a rigorous analysis of the policy to determine how to comply fully with the requirements. Given the University's substantial mandatory Title IX educational requirements for students, faculty and staff, we are already in complete compliance with the policy and will continue to satisfy the requirements going forward.
Athletics and the Title IX officer are partners in ensuring that prevention of sexual violence is of the highest priority at San Jose State.
Title IX-Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and Graduates Training
San Jose State requires all incoming students to complete Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates or Graduates, a mandatory online sexual assault education program. In addition, all continuing students are required to complete Sexual Assault Prevention Ongoing Education annually.
Title IX requires institutions to take necessary precautions to prevent sexual assault on their campuses, and to respond promptly and effectively when an assault is reported. To comply with Title IX, the CSU Chancellor’s Office issued Executive Order 1095, which mandates educational training programs to prevent sexual violence.
