Who to Contact

If you feel that you have been the victim of sexual harassment, discrimination or assault the University has a process by which you can report the issue.  You may also report to the University if you feel you have been retaliated against for a previously filed complaint or if you participated in an investigation of such a complaint.

The University has designated a Title IX Coordinator who is responsible for ensuring the University’s compliance with Title IX including oversight of investigations into complaints.  SF State has also designated several Deputy Title IX Coordinators.

The Title IX Coordinator serves as the primary intake officer for faculty; the Equity Programs & Compliance Manager serves as the primary intake officer for staff; and, the Title IX Senior Deputy Coordinator for Students serves as the primary intake officer for students.

The Equity Programs & Compliance Office is physically located in the Student Services Building, Suite 403. 

If you are in the midst of an emergency, please call the police immediately by dialing 9-1-1.

If you wish to fill out a complaint form online with the OCR, you may do so at:



Once a concern has been raised, SF State will follow its established procedures which are based on CSU Executive Orders 1096 and 1097 to address complaints of discrimination, harassment or retaliation. Reports can be made via the incident reporting form. Alternatively, you may visit Suite 403 in the Student Services Building to speak to someone directly. 

Except in the case of a privilege recognized under California law (examples of which include Evidence Code §§1014 (psychotherapist-patient); 1035.8 (sexual assault counselor-victim); and 1037.5 (domestic violence counselor-victim)), any member of the University community who knows of or has reason to know of sexual discrimination allegations shall promptly inform SF State’s Title IX Coordinator.

Regardless of whether an alleged victim of sexual discrimination ultimately files a complaint, if the campus knows or has reason to know about possible sexual discrimination, harassment or violence, it must review the matter to determine if an investigation is warranted.  SF State must then take appropriate steps to eliminate any sex discrimination/harassment, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects.
