The Districtís goals are to create a supportive climate that encourages each victim/survivor of sexual violence to report the incident(s) and to provide support and information to assist her (or him) in dealing with these traumatic events, while respecting the victim/survivorís right to choose whether or not to report. This Policy also intends to promote campus safety through prompt and confidential reporting of sexual violence incidents to appropriate campus officials.
The District policy on sexual assault applies to all members of the campus community, including students, faculty, staff, administrators, visitors, and invitees of the College. Any sexual assault or physical abuse, including, but not limited to, rape, as defined by California Penal Code, whether committed by an employee, student, or member of the public, occurring on District property, or on an off-campus site or facility maintained by the District, or on grounds or facilities maintained by a student organization, is a violation of the District policy and state regulations, and is subject to all applicable punishment, including criminal procedures and employee or student discipline procedures. (See also AP 5500, Standards of Student Conduct.) It is also District policy to actively prevent rape and sexual assault. The District maintains a zero tolerance standard concerning sexual violence.
