Federal and state laws and CSU/Cal State LA policies prohibit dating and domestic violence, sexual violence, stalking, and other forms of misconduct. This prohibition applies to students, employees, and others; as well as to conduct both on and off-campus. Perpetrators can be subject to campus sanctions such as suspension, expulsion, and employment termination; as well as arrest, criminal prosecution, restitution, and civil justice. Victims and survivors have numerous rights granted by federal and state laws (see Survivors' Rights). Additionally, dating and domestic violence, sexual violence and sexually motivated stalking are also considered to be Title IX violations.

How Cal State LA addresses and responds to these crimes and related misconduct — from prevention programming to incident response and perpetrator accountability to victim and survivor assistance — is defined by federal and state laws, as well as California State University (CSU) executive orders (system-wide policies).
