LA Times – California State University has hired the system’s first coordinator dedicated solely to enforcing gender discrimination laws and combating campus sexual violence, officials announced Friday.

Pamela Thomason will lead efforts at all 23 Cal State campuses to enforce state and federal laws, train faculty, staff, students and administrators, develop new initiatives and assist in investigations of harassment, retaliation and violence complaints.

Thomason, 57, previously served as the sexual harassment and Title IX officer at UCLA, as a regional attorney for the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and as an attorney at the law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

Her position is believed to be the first representing an entire university system, officials said.

She is “a well-recognized authority on this topic who brings exceptional knowledge and experience with her to the CSU,” said Fram Virjee, Cal State’s executive vice chancellor and general counsel. “Her work will be vital to expanding the education and training of students, faculty and staff to tackle the issue of sexual violence in our campus communities.”
