Faculty & Staff Resources

Syllabus Statement

Not Alone @ the Beach provides resources to faculty and students. For faculty who want to support their students after an experience of dating violence, sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking, these syllabi statements provide an opportunity to educate and support every student at CSULB. By placing this information in a syllabus, faculty create access to information, resources, and reporting options for their students.

Suggested Syllabi Statement 

Title IX prohibits gender discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. If you have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, dating/domestic violence, or stalking, the Campus Confidential Advocate is available to help.  Jaqueline Urtez (e: advocate@csulb.edu, p: (562) 985-2668) can provide free and confidential support, accommodations, and referrals for victims without having to report the assault to campus authorities.  While students are welcome to discuss assaults with faculty or disclose such experiences in class discussions or assignments, both faculty and teaching assistants are responsible employees who are required to report all known incidents of sexual harassment/misconduct to the Office of Equity & Diversity/Title IX Office for follow-up.  Reporting this information will result in the student being contacted by the Office of Equity & Diversity/Title IX Office with information on accommodations and reporting options for possible investigation.  Students do not need to respond to the Office of Equity & Diversity/Title IX Office, but students who do wish to report the assault for possible investigation are encouraged to contact the Campus Confidential Advocate, who can help them through the reporting process, or they can report the assault directly to the Office of Equity & Diversity/Title IX Office by completing an online reporting form at https://www.csulb.edu/equity-diversity/title-ix or contacting the Office of Equity & Diversity at OED@csulb.edu.

Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation for Students (CARES) Syllabus Statement

The CARES team provides case management services for students experiencing personal challenges related to their personal, physical, or emotional well-being.  Students who contact the CARES team will be connected to a case manager who can assess students’ needs, develop an individualized action plan, and connect them to appropriate services. Students may also contact the CARES team if they are concerned that another students’ behavior poses a concern, potential threat, or actual threat to self or others.  You may use the CARES team confidential website to report concerns: http://www.csulb.edu/divisions/students/cares/  In the event of an active emergency, dial 911.
