Please note that there are two policies that impact how we respond to information shared in scholarship essays. These are Executive Order 1097 (which relates to sexual assault, partner violence, and stalking) and Executive Order 1083 (which relates to child abuse). Once CSU faculty members are apprised of such incidents, we are required to report the incident to a campus officer, regardless of whether the student intended to report this information reported or not. While all instances of child abuse are mandated reports, individuals impacted by sexual violence, dating/domestic abuse and stalking in the Cal Poly Pomona community may seek confidential services through CPP’s Survivor Advocacy Services.
