Sexual misconduct, particularly sexual violence, may be a crime. SUSLA will assist complainants who wish to report sexual misconduct to the SUSLA Police Department. Representatives of the Office of Student Life/Assistant Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, Residence Life and Housing, and the Office of Human Resources are available to assist students in reporting to SUSLA PD. SUSLA PD will also assist complainants in notifying other law enforcement authorities in other jurisdictions, as appropriate.
A Confidential Advisor is not obligated to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator or law enforcement in a way that identifies a complainant or respondent, unless otherwise required to do so by law. The Confidential Advisor shall, to the extent authorized under law, provide confidential services to students.
Non-Retaliation Policy: Retaliation against any person who alleges a violation of the Gender- Based Sexual Misconduct Policy or who reports or assists SUSLA in the investigation of a complaint under this policy may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion by SUBR. Retaliation against any person who is the Complainant/victim of sexual misconduct is prohibited as well. There will be no retaliation against those who report or assist the SUBR campus in the investigation of a complaint. Retaliation against the Complainant/victim or witnesses may warrant a separate University judicial process hearing.
