Response to Sexual Violence, Dating & Domestic Violence, and Stalking
Laney College recognizes that sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, and stalking are serious issues. The College seeks to ensure that members of its campus community are aware that such behavior is prohibited by law and by College policy, and that the College will not tolerate acts of sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, or stalking in any form, including rape, on its campus.
The Peralta Community College District (PCCD), of which Laney College is a part, has adopted Board Policy 3540 and Administrative Procedure 3540, SEXUAL AND OTHER ASSAULTS ON CAMPUS (www.peralta.edu). The policy is a statement of the District/College’s commitment to educate the college community in order to prevent occurrences of sexual violence. The District/College will provide information to all faculty, staff, and students regarding the definitions of sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, and stalking, how to prevent them, and how to report incidents of sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, or stalking. The District/College will provide assistance and support to victims of sexual assault, dating & domestic violence, and stalking and take appropriate actions to correct and discipline behavior that is found to violate the District/College policy or state regulations regarding these offenses.
