Specific responsibilities of a CSU Title IX Coordinator are outlined in the CSU Nondiscrimination Policy, Attachment B, effective 1/1/22 or successor.  The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for the coordination of training, prevention education, and communications.  Further the Title IX Coordinator will oversee intervention into reports of policy violations including providing supportive resources and the administration of complaint procedures for Employees, Students and Third Parties in the areas of Sexual Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Exploitation, Dating and Domestic Violence, and Stalking. The Title IX Coordinator has authority across all campus-based divisions and programs to monitor, supervise, oversee, and ensure implementation of the CSU Nondiscrimination Policy.

Per the CSU Systemwide Nondiscrimination Policy. the DHR Administrator is defined as "DHR (Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation) Administrator means the Management Personnel Plan (MPP) Employee at each campus who is designated to administer this Nondiscrimination Policy and coordinate compliance with the laws prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation. The DHR Administrator may delegate tasks to one or more designees, provided that any designee shall be an MPP Employee or an external consultant, and the DHR Administrator retains overall responsibility and authority."

While compliance is an essential responsibility of the position, the Assistant Vice President is an instrumental leader and collaborator to a safe, fair, respectful, and responsive campus culture.   It is essential that the Assistant Vice President build and maintain positive rapport with student leaders, student activists, faculty, staff, and administrators with particular attention to the various employee bargaining unit representatives that will be involved in employee related cases.
