In compliance with Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Fresno Pacific University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, or status as a veteran in the recruitment or admission of students or in any of its policies, practices, or procedures.

Fresno Pacific University endeavors to provide a safe and orderly learning, working and living environment, in which all students are able to pursue their academic, social and spiritual development. The Fresno Pacific University community believes that all individuals have the right to study, teach, work and live free from discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and sexual misconduct.

As a Christian Community we will model and work with each other in ways that respect and encourage full acceptance of all persons, and the full exercise and development of our individual gifts and vocations. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. The university will respond to inappropriate, unwanted, or illegal behavior regardless whether such behavior is intentional or simply resultant from careless or insensitive behavior.

The university reserves the right to implement a disciplinary process, which may culminate in the suspension or dismissal of any student who does not meet behavioral standards or comply with University policies. The university also expects that the actions of any student not pose a threat to the health and/or safety of others and not unreasonably disrupt the educational environment of the university. Fresno Pacific University’s Title IX Coordinator is the designated agent of the University with primary responsibility for coordinating University Title IX compliance efforts. The Title IX Coordinator’s responsibilities are critical to the development, implementation, and monitoring of meaningful efforts to comply with Title IX legislation, regulation, and case law. In broad terms, the Title IX Coordinator oversees monitoring of University policy in relation to Title IX law developments; implementation of grievance procedures, including notification, investigation and disposition of complaints; provision of educational materials and training for the campus community; conducting and/or coordinating investigations of complaints received pursuant to Title IX; ensuring a fair and neutral process for all parties; and monitoring all other aspects of the University’s Title IX compliance. The following people have been designated to handle inquiries regarding the University’s non-discrimination policies and Title IX, to receive discrimination/harassment complaints from members of the university community, and to monitor the institution’s compliance with state and federal non-discrimination laws and regulations:
