Preventing Hate Crime

In California, you are considered a victim of a hate crime if you have been targeted because of your "real" or "perceived" race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability. People belonging to these groups are referred to as "protected classes." All people are members of a protected class. Members of our Chico State campus community are encouraged to report hate crimes to our university police.

Safe Zone Ally Programs

Safe Zone’s purpose is to reduce homophobia and heterosexism on our campus and thereby make the campus a safer and freer environment for all members of our community.


Women’s Center

The Associated Students Women's Center is a student-run activist organization that evolved from the feminist ideology that all genders should be equal. We provide a safe, accepting environment and strive to empower all students through awareness - raising events, services and referrals.
