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.

To help reduce risk of harm, safety planning can be extremely important. As safety needs vary depending on circumstances, consulting with a 24-hour hotline, law enforcement or the Title IX Coordinator is recommended.

If desired, basic safety planning is available through the Student Health Center by appointment by calling 323-343-3300.

Helpful safety planning strategies may be found through the:

Crisis Intervention & Counseling and Psychological Services

Crisis intervention counseling is available 24-hours a day through 24-hour hotlines. Ongoing counseling, support groups and other advocacy services are also available through local domestic violence and sexual assault survivor support agencies.

If desired, crisis intervention counseling is offered by the Student Health Center. Counseling and psychological services (CAPS) is provided by the Center’s licensed mental health professionals.

  • Call 323.343.3300 for an appointment.

Medical Care

Obtaining medical care after an assault is very important. Ideally, this care is obtained from hospitals or clinics that specialize in survivor assistance and forensic examination (24-hour hotlines can provide survivors with the locations of appropriate facilities).

Related medical services offered by the Student Health Center include: injury treatment; testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections; emergency contraception; and referrals. These services are available by appointment by calling (323) 343-3300.

Important Notes

Obtaining medical services from hospitals or clinics that perform forensic exams* is especially important for sexual assaults that occurred within the preceding 120 hours. 24-hour hotlines can provide survivors with the locations of appropriate facilities. When crimes are reported to law enforcement, the responding agency will assist survivors with evidence preservation. Local facilities that perform the sexual assault forensic exam include:

  • Rape Treatment Center at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica: 1250 Sixteenth Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404 | Phone: 424.259.6000, extension '0' - request rape hotline from the hospital operator

California law requires health practitioners to report details of injuries resulting from domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes involving patients they treat to a local law enforcement agency. Questions regarding a provider's reporting obligations can be asked prior to disclosure.

*Sexual violence victims and survivors are entitled to obtain sexual assault forensic (evidence) exams at no cost even if they choose not to report incidents to law enforcement. For additional information, please see Evidence Preservation.

Law Enforcement and Campus Official Notifications

All crime victims and survivors are encouraged to report crimes and policy violations to law enforcement, University Police, the Title IX Officer (Office for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion), and/or campus security authorities. If requested, Student Health Center staff can assist survivors with these notifications and connect survivors with local support agencies.

Information, Resources and Referrals

Local domestic and sexual violence survivor support agencies and 24-hour hotlines provide specialized and case-specific safety planning, information, resources, care, support, and services.

Student Health Center staff provide general information, resources, care, and support, as well as providing referrals to victim and survivor support community resources.

University Reporting Options and Obigations

Campus-Based Reporting Options

Student Health Center personnel can provide survivors with information on their campus-based rights.

Details are available in CSU Executive Order 1095 that accompanies the Cal State LA Title IX Notice of Non-Discrimination. This executive order identifies prohibited conduct. It also answers questions victims and survivors may have related to Cal State LA options - including reporting options.

Student Health Center Reporting Obligations

All Student Health Center (SHC) personnel are mandated child abuse and neglect reporters (as are ALL CSU/Cal State LA employees). In addition, depending on the role of the provider (e.g., psychological counselor, medical provider or health educator) who assists a survivor, elder abuse, suspicious injury, and other legally mandated reporting may apply.

Information may be found in the SHC Notice of Privacy Practices or by asking staff about their reporting obligations. Those with concerns may ask providers about their specific reporting responsibilities before disclosure — this allows survivors to decide how much information they want to share while still receiving assistance and support.
