CPP strives to maintain an environment free from all forms of discrimination, harassment (including sexual harassment) and sexual misconduct. The California State University has developed systemwide policies and procedures that apply to all faculty, staff and students. To access the policy please click on the link below.

Executive Order 1098 is Student Conduct Procedures and was revised on March 29, 2019.  This document includes the process for sanctioning of students after it has been determined that a violation of Executive Order 1096 or Executive Order 1097 has occurred.

The California State University’s Policy prohibits consensual relationships which meet certain conditions.  The prohibition is defined as follows:

A Prohibited Consensual Relationship is a consensual sexual or romantic relationship between an Employee and any Student or Employee over whom they exercise direct or otherwise significant academic, administrative, supervisory, evaluative, counseling, or extracurricular authority.


Employees who are in a current consensual relationship or contemplating entering a consensual relationship as defined above are responsible to disclose this relationship to the Title IX Coordinator. Additionally, third parties may also report consensual relationships which they believe fall under the purview of the CSU Policy.  To ensure the integrity of the reporting process, anonymous reporting is discouraged.

Please note that failure to disclose a consensual relationship which potentially falls under behavior prohibited by the CSU Policy may result in discipline that is administered in a manner consistent with applicable collective bargaining agreements, CSU policies, and legal requirements.

The goal of the review process in all cases will be to assist with preservation of the relationship.  All documentation regarding consensual relationships disclosed and their resolution shall be maintained by the Title IX Coordinator.  In accordance with applicable federal and state laws, as well as university policies, every reasonable effort will be made to ensure the confidentiality and privacy of these records.
