Among the guarantees of the U.S. Constitution is the right of citizens to inform others of their opinions by peaceful demonstration, including picketing. The right to demonstrate does not include the right to break the law by
Demonstrating on campus is subject to time, place, and manner requirements. To ensure that the orderly and peaceful flow of campus business and activities will not be disrupted, all organizations or individuals wishing to demonstrate should schedule the time and location of such an event in advance, thereby avoiding a conflict with a special campus or student event that may already be scheduled. To secure a permit, the protesting group must contact the Office of Student Life and Development, USU-215.
TIME: Protest activities that have been approved may occur during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or at times stated in the permit.
PLACE: Approved protest activities may take place on campus with the following exceptions: inside buildings and facilities; within the Liberal Arts corridor between LA-1 and LA-5; vendor areas and walkways immediately adjacent to the University Dining Plaza; within 32 feet of the University Student Union escalator as well as the covered walkway on the west side of the University Student Union from the escalator to the end of the walkway on West Campus Drive; and within 50 feet of any building in which instructional, educational and/or official business activities are being conducted.
MANNER: Those who participate must conduct themselves in an orderly and lawful manner. Such activities must not interfere with instructional programs or operations of the campus. In addition, such activities must not interfere with vehicle or pedestrian traffic. These activities must be conducted in conformance with all applicable federal and state laws and University policies and regulations.
NOTE: Restrictions may apply to the use of oversized wood stakes.
VIOLATIONS: Violations of time, place, and manner policies may result in the removal of the offending party or parties from campus as well as possible loss of further use of campus facilities and grounds and personal liability for any cost incurred by the campus due to improper use.
Additionally, where these activities present a danger to the safety of the campus community or where the activity interferes with lawful conduct of University business, University Police may declare the activity an unlawful assembly and issue a dispersal order pursuant to California Penal Code, Section 409.
Provided below are the regulations regarding criminal penalties for fraud and abuse as adopted by the U.S. Congress. These regulations are the federal code related to The Higher Education Act of 1965, Section 490 (Criminal Penalties).
The law establishes criminal penalties for fraud and abuse under the Title IV programs..
Reference: Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended through public law 113-67, enacted December 26, 2013, Section 490 (20 U.S.C. 1097).
Sexual misconduct against a person includes sexual assault and stalking. Sexual assault perpetrated by any person—an acquaintance, date, stranger, partner, or spouse—in any form—inappropriate touching or fondling or cyber- or physical stalking—will not be tolerated at CSULB. Where there is evidence that a campus-related sexual assault has been committed by a student, campus disciplinary action will be initiated. Such campus disciplinary action may include, after due process, the possibility of expulsion, suspension, or disenrollment. If the victim initiates criminal action against the perpetrator, in addition to reporting the crime to a campus reporting authority, the perpetrator is subject to criminal penalties, which may include fines and imprisonment.
CSULB views seriously its obligations to uphold the laws of the larger community of which it is a part. An association with the University does not exempt a person from local, state, or federal laws, but rather imposes the additional obligation to abide by all the rules and regulations of the California State University.
The University follows Executive Order 1097 Systemwide Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Against Students and Systemwide Procedure for Handling Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Complaints by Students.
A student charged with a sexual misconduct or sexual assault/battery violation that is campus-related may be subject to prosecution under appropriate California criminal statutes, as well as being subject to student discipline under the Student Disciplinary Procedures for the California State University (CSU Executive Order 1098, Student Conduct Procedures for the California State University, and California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Sections 41301-41304, Student Discipline).
Employees charged with a sexual misconduct violation that is campus-related may be subject to prosecution under appropriate California criminal statutes as well as being subject to discipline under the California Education Code, Sections 89535-89540. Such campus disciplinary action for employees may include demotion, suspension, or dismissal.
Persons involved in, or possessing knowledge of, a campus-related sexual violence are strongly encouraged to notify University Police immediately. University Police may be notified by dialing 911 (from any telephone, including cell phones, on campus) or by calling (562) 985-4101.
The CSU does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, or sexual orientation in its education programs or activities. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and certain other federal and state laws, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in all education programs and activities operated by the university (both on and off campus). Title IX protects all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and violence.
Title IX requires the University to designate a Title IX coordinator to monitor and oversee overall Title IX compliance. Your campus Title IX coordinator, Jeane Relleve Caveness (email@example.com; (562)985-5587) is available to explain and discuss: your right to file a criminal complaint (sexual assault and violence); the university’s complaint process, including the investigation process; how confidentiality is handled; available resources, both on and off campus; and other related matters. If you are in the midst of an emergency, please call the police immediately by dialing 9-1-1.
For more information regarding Title IX refer to the Title IX Booklet, which may be downloaded HERE.
Title IX requires that the CSU adopt and publish complaint procedures that provide for prompt and equitable resolution of sex discrimination complaints, including sexual harassment and violence. CSU Executive Order 1097 is the system-wide procedure for all complaints of discrimination, harassment or retaliation made by students against the CSU, a CSU employee, other CSU students or a third party.
Except in the case of a privilege recognized under California law (examples of which include Evidence Code, Sections 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 the campus 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. The campus must then take appropriate steps to eliminate any sex discrimination/harassment, prevent its recurrence and remedy its effects.

The White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault

No student, employee, volunteer, member of the public, or recipient of services and/or benefits provided by CSULB shall be subjected to any form of prohibited discrimination or harassment in any CSULB programs, services, or activities.
Prohibited Discrimination is treatment of an individual or class of individuals which denies opportunity, participation, or benefit on any CSU program or activity based on any of the following protected statuses:
Gender Identity or Expression
Race or Ethnicity
Veteran Status or Military Status
Prohibited Harassment means unwelcome conduct, engaged in because of a protected status that is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that its effect, whether intended or not, could be considered by a reasonable person in the shoes of the student, or is in fact considered by the student, as limiting the student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or opportunities offered by the University.
Prohibited Sexual Harassment, aa form of Sex Discrimination, is unwelcome verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that includes but is not limited to sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and any other conduct of a sexual nature where
Prohibited Retaliation/Reprisal means adverse action taken against a student because he/she has or is believed to have
A discrimination complaint resolution officer (Larisa Hamada, Director of Equity and Diversity) has been appointed by the University president. This individual serves as a resource for any member of the campus community regarding complaints of harassment or discrimination based on protected status.
Information regarding discrimination or harassment complaints may be shared on a “need to know” basis with other campus employees, and with law enforcement (with the Complainant’s written consent), except for some limited exceptions (see CSU Executive order 1095). The DHR Administrator shall endeavor to honor any request for confidentiality; however, the DHR Administrator shall also weigh requests for confidentiality against the University’s duty to provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for all members of the campus community. Confidentiality, therefore, cannot be ensured.
The early resolution process may be initiated by contacting the discrimination complaint officer in the Office of Equity and Diversity. If the proposed remedy is unsatisfactory to the complainant, or if the complaint is not resolved in the early resolution process, the complaint can proceed to the campus investigation level. All discrimination and harassment complaints reported to other University employees must be referred to the director of Equity and Diversity. The early resolution process is not appropriate for allegations of sexual misconduct.
fA campus investigation may be initiated by submitting a completed, signed complaint form to the Office of Equity and Diversity, located in FND 120. The complainant will be required to provide an account of the alleged incident, to describe what effect it has caused, and to propose what remedy is sought. Campus investigation procedures include notification to the individual charged with prohibited behavior. An investigation will be conducted by Equity and Diversity, and the findings will be reported to the appropriate division executive or the Office of Student Conduct and Ethical Development for any resulting discipline action. The division executive or Office of Student Conduct and Ethical Development will take appropriate action. The complaint will be handled in accordance with Executive Order 1097.
The full text of these procedures, including timelines, is available in the Office of Equity and Diversity, Foundation Building, room 120.
Note: Students may seek assistance with resolving a complaint against an employee of an auxiliary organization (Associated Students, CSULB Foundation and Forty-Niner Shops) by contacting the appropriate office listed below:
Associated Students human resources manager,
CSULB Foundation associate director of Human Resources and Administrative Services, Foundation Building, room 332
Forty-Niner Shops director of Human Resources, University Bookstore,
This policy is issued by the University president pursuant to the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Section 41301, and Section 952 of the General Education Provisions Act, as amended. It concerns the disclosure of information to a parent or legal guardian of a student regarding violation(s) of any rule or policy of the University, governing the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance. This policy became effective August 1, 2001.
Campus regulations and policies are adopted pursuant to the authority of the CSULB University President, who is responsible for the educational effectiveness, academic excellence, and general welfare of the campus (California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Sections 41301 and 42402).
Drug or alcohol violations are determined by established due process procedures, which include notice of the charges and the right to be heard. University-level student disciplinary procedures follow CSU Executive Order 1098, Student Conduct Procedures for the California State University. The document is available in the Office of Student Conduct and Ethical Development, USU-218. On-campus housing Judicial Board Procedures and housing regulations are available in the Housing and Residential Life Office.
The primary purpose of this policy is to allow for notification of parents and legal guardians of students who are under the age of 21 and who in the determination of the University (after due process) have violated campus drug or alcohol-related policies. The final decision whether to notify is made by the University president’s designee, the vice president for student affairs. Reasons for such notification include:
For further clarification of this policy, contact the Office of the Associate Vice President/Dean of Students, USU-219.
This policy is issued by the University president pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Section 41301, Standards for Student Conduct.
The University is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy living and learning environment for students, faculty, and staff. Each member of the campus community should choose behaviors that contribute toward this end. Students are expected to be good citizens and to engage in responsible behaviors that reflect well upon the University, to be civil to one another and to others in the campus community, and to contribute positively to student and University life.
Student behavior that is not consistent with the Student Conduct Code is addressed through an educational process that is designed to promote safety and good citizenship and, when necessary, impose appropriate consequences.
The following are the grounds upon which student discipline can be based:
The chancellor shall adopt procedures to ensure students are afforded appropriate notice and an opportunity to be heard before the University imposes any sanction for a violation of the Student Conduct Code.
Sanctions for the conduct listed above can be imposed on applicants, enrolled students, students between academic terms, graduates awaiting degrees, and students who withdraw from school while a disciplinary matter is pending. Conduct that threatens the safety or security of the campus community, or substantially disrupts the functions or operation of the University, is within the jurisdiction of this article regardless of whether it occurs on or off campus. Nothing in this code may conflict with California Education Code, Section 66301, which prohibits disciplinary action against students based on behavior protected by the First Amendment.
Note: Authority cited: California Education Code, Sections 66017, 66452, 66600, 69810, 89030, 89030.1, and 89035. References: California Education Code, Sections 66450, 69813 et seq., and 89030, and California Penal Code, Section 245.6.
