2015 2nd Annual LEEP/Campus Reading Program
Following up on the success from last year, LEEP will be helping to lead another all-campus reading program in support of this school year's Week of Inclusive Excellence (February 23 - 27, 2015). Just like last year, we are encouraging faculty and staff to take part in this, our 2nd Annual LEEP/CSU East Bay Campus Reading Program, by joining with others on campus to read and discuss the book with your peers and the author.
This year's book is She’s Not There, A Life in Two Genders. Written by Jennifer Finney Boylan, it is a memoir about a person changing genders. To give you a sense of the book, the publisher shares the following: “By turns hilarious and deeply moving, Jennifer Finney Boylan explores the territory that lies between men and women, examines changing friendships, and rejoices in the redeeming power of family. Told in Boylan’s fresh voice, She’s Not There is about a person bearing and finally revealing a complex secret.” This book has been selected as required reading for all incoming freshmen through General Studies, and which highlights a timely and thought-provoking topic that we recommend and challenge every faculty/staff member to deeply explore as they read the book.
As part of this program, and with the generous financial support of the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, James Houpis, LEEP will provide copies of the book to any faculty or staff member who would like to read the book and take part in the future small group discussions. To do so, please indicate your interest by signing up here:
We’ll start delivering the books to you beginning Monday, December 15, 2014 and will continue to do so until early February 2015, or until we run out of books, whichever comes first. Make sure to reserve your copy early so you’ll have enough time to read the book before we meet with the author at the end of February.
For additional questions about this program, please send your inquiry to the general LEEP email address (email@example.com), or to the program director, Corey Gin (firstname.lastname@example.org, 510-885-2918).

Haven Sexual Assault Prevention Training for Students
On October 15, 2014, all CSUEB students received an email indicating that they MUST complete sexual assault prevention training online. Due to the large population of students receiving this message, it is likely that staff and faculty will receive questions regarding the training.
In anticipation of this, we have created a FAQ page on the Title IX Website. Please either direct students to the FAQ web page, or reference the web page to answer common questions.
Should you receive questions that cannot be answered by the FAQ page, please direct students to send an email to: email@example.com for assistance.
