Title IX Resources and Contact Information
Whether you are seeking help right after an incident of sexual harassment or sexual violence, or if you are looking for support for a past incident, free and confidential, help may be available both on-campus and off-campus for all parties.
On Campus Resources
The Department of Community Safety is available as a first option to report any incidents of crime or violence on campus. The Department of Community Safety can assist in filing a report with law enforcement agencies, providing an escort service on campus to any student, etc. Contact the Department of Community Safety.
Student Health Center
The Student Health Center provides psychological counseling services and medical treatment. Psychological counseling services with Health Center Therapists are confidential. The Student Health Center can provide medical care but, unfortunately, is not equipped for forensic examinations. To initiate an exam, please connect with a local law enforcement agency and/or a local crisis center. See Off-Campus Resources for additional information.
While most health services are confidential, under California Penal Code Section 11160-11163.2, the Student Health Center must notify law enforcement of suspected self-inflicted injuries or injuries caused by abuse or assault.
