Fresno State has received word from the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) that it has closed its case against the University.
A letter to President Joseph I. Castro from the director of the Seattle office said, “OCR has determined that the University has fully implemented all of the specific steps required” in a Voluntary Resolution Agreement in 2009. OCR and the University entered into the agreement in order to resolve multiple Title IX athletics complaints that had been filed against Fresno State.
The University has been providing OCR with the required monitoring reports and data demonstrating completion of 45 specific remedial action steps.
“While we are very pleased that this case is closed, we will continue to remain steadfast in maintaining our compliance with Title IX,” Castro said. “We want to continue to be a national leader in this area. Academics and athletics at Fresno State will continue to boldly rise together.”
