Respondent Advisors are campus administrators who have been trained in the resolution and investigation processes under CSU Executive Orders 1096 and 1097. Respondent Advisors may attend investigatory interviews, meetings with the Title IX and Gender Equity Office, as well as meet individually with individuals named in complaints under these executive orders.
Unlike a Certified Sexual Assault Advocate, Respondent Advisors do not have confidential protections under California statutes; they may be required to share information with the Title IX and Gender Equity Office. However, Respondent Advisors can provide clarification on University processes under the executive orders as well as connect individuals to campus resources for support. To access a Respondent Advisor, please contact the Title IX and Gender Equity Office at 657-278-2121, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
