Health, Wellness, and Belonging

CSU College of Law is a student-centered law school. We strive to open doors and open minds and provide a level of accessibility, support, encouragement and interaction that many law schools don’t offer. Our first priority is our students’ first-class, quality legal education, but we also care about your happiness, health, and well-being.

We expect all members of our community to follow the CSU Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Violence and Retaliation and to report incidents of discrimination, harassment, sexual violence and retaliation to the Office for Institutional Equity.

We encourage students to familiarize themselves with a variety of campus resources to promote student wellbeing and success:
