A long-awaited report describing a broken system across Cal State's 23 campuses of handling complaints of sexual harassment and discrimination includes detailed reports on each campus with recommendations for reforms. The following is an excerpt with a link at the end to the full campus report. From our media colleagues at EdSource.

Sonoma State University
The campus community's perception of the Office for the Prevention of Discrimination and Harassment, which handles Title IX reports, "remains colored by the university's recent experience, which includes a high-profile matter involving the former president's husband." Because of recent changes, including new leadership, there is renewed optimism that the office is in a position to succeed, but "numerous challenges remain in rebuilding trust and strengthening the functioning." Those include hiring more staff "to fill necessary positions to support necessary intake, support, and investigative functions." The office should also launch a campaign "to educate the university about OPHD, its purpose and function, and resources available through OPHD."
