Report 2013-124: Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence: California Universities Must Better Protect Students by Doing More to Prevent, Respond to, and Resolve Incidents (Release Date: June 2014)

Recommendation #10 To: Chico, California State University

To help ensure that resident advisors handle incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence appropriately, all universities should provide supplemental training on sexual harassment and sexual violence, including rape awareness training, for resident advisors twice a year.

6-Month Agency Response

To help ensure that resident advisors handle incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence appropriately, University Housing in conjunction with Student Judicial Affairs, The Title IX Coordinator, and Safe Place provided training to the Resident Advisor staff on August 12, 2014. A second training to build on the matters covered in August is scheduled for January 13, 2015.

  • Estimated Completion Date: January 2015
  • Response Date: December 2014

California State Auditor's Assessment of 6-Month Status: Fully Implemented

Chico marked this as not fully implemented because the second training, scheduled for January 2015, had not yet occurred at the time of its six-month response. However, it has subsequently demonstrated that it fully implemented this recommendation.


60-Day Agency Response

To help ensure that Resident Advisors handle incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence appropriately, University Housing in conjunction with Student Judicial Affairs and Safe Place has already provided the first training to the Resident Advisor staff on August 12, 2014.

Updated training will be repeated in January 2015 and ongoing each semester thereafter.

  • Estimated Completion Date: January 2015
  • Response Date: August 2014

California State Auditor's Assessment of 60-Day Status: Pending
