Federal and California laws and CSU/Cal State LA policies prohibit dating and domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking. This prohibition applies to students, employees, and others. These laws and policies apply to conduct both on and off-campus.
Campus sanctions include suspension, expulsion, and employment termination. Perpetrators may face arrest and criminal prosecution. Offenders may have to compensate victims for crime and misconduct related expenses.
Survivors and victims have numerous rights granted by federal and state laws. These rights include fair treatment, confidentiality and campus-based accommodations.
Project SAFE is the Student Health Center's domestic and sexual violence and stalking awareness program. This website offers information and helpful resources. Survivors are encouraged to seek assistance.
