Caution: Please take care when searching for resources. Phone, tablet, computer, and other device activity may be monitored. Visited websites may be tracked or viewed by another person. It may be safer for victims and survivors to obtain information using a device a perpetrator does not have potential access to. 

For more information, consider visiting the National Domestic Violence Hotline. The Hotline can also be contacted at 800.799.7233 or 800.787.3224 (TTY) for assistance.

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. Victims and survivors are encouraged to seek assistance.

What We Do

We also provide the following confidential survivor assistance services, if requested:
