Discrimination, Harassment And Retaliation (DHR) Administrator

The Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation (DHR) Administrator is responsible for the implementation and compliance of the campus policy on the prohibition of discrimination and harassment based upon Protected Status and retaliation. CSUF will not tolerate acts of discrimination or harassment based upon Protected Status, or related retaliation against or by any employees or students.

All members of the campus community, including guests, who perceive to have experienced acts of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation (DHR) may report the incident by submitting a DHR Reporting Form. Please know that submitting this form is not the same thing as filing a formal complaint of DHR.



CSUF takes allegations of DHR very seriously.
