Title IX is part of the Education Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act and is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education. This federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex/gender in education programs or activities operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. The purpose of Title IX is to help foster safe and respectful university environments that better protect students, faculty and staff from incidents of sex/gender-based discrimination. Title IX applies to all participants of such programs, including students, parents and faculty/staff members.
FSU's Title IX Office Remains Available to Serve Our Campus Community-
Although most of Fayetteville State University is temporarily operating online, this does not change the fact that the University is committed to maintaining a work and educational environment that embraces diversity and where no member of the campus community is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subject to discrimination in any college program or activity based on: their race, ethnicity, national origin, color, religion, age, disability, sex, pregnancy or parental status, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, genetic information, political opinions or affiliations, or veteran status.
This commitment applies to employees, volunteers, students, and, to the extent possible, to third parties, applicants for admission, applicants for employment, and the general public. Discrimination and harassment of any kind are wholly unacceptable and run contrary to our academic mission and values as an institution. All inquiries regarding non-discrimination policies or concerns related to sex/gender-based harassment, discrimination, or other Title IX concerns, should be directed to the Title IX Office - as soon as practicable.
Kindly note, harassment and discrimination can occur in an online environment. It is imperative that staff and faculty members understand their continued responsibility to report any Title IX concerns to the University's Title IX Office.
The well-being, security, and safety of our students, staff, and faculty members have always been our first priority. We will continue to be of service to each of you by providing you with virtual alternatives to connect with useful information, resources, and assistance. If there is anything that the Title IX Office can be doing for you during this challenging time, please do not hesitate to reach out.
By continuing to our work together, we can ensure that our University remains free from all forms of harassment and discrimination.

At FSU, every campus community member has a role to play in knowing, naming, and stopping stalking.
Our University Policies prohibit Stalking "(based upon sex/gender) is defined as a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear. Stalking involves repeated and continued harassment made against the expressed wishes of another individual, which causes the targeted individual to feel emotional distress, including fear and apprehension. Stalking behaviors may include the following: pursuing or following; non-consensual (unwanted) communication or contact - including face-to-face, telephone calls, voice messages, electronic messages, web-based messages, text messages, unwanted gifts, etc.; trespassing; and surveillance or other types of observation."
The Connecting the Dots tool, along with the Title IX Office, Police & Public Safety Department, and the Center for Personal Development can assist you to determine if you are being stalked, developing a safety plan, and much,much more.
