Report an Incident of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation


What Are My Options?

If you have been a victim of sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct, you have choices about how you'd like to proceed. The most important factor is that you are safe and are not in imminent danger. If you believe you are in danger, call 911 or the Sheriff’s Station at your College.

If you have been subjected to sexual or gender-based harassment or misconduct, LACCD strongly encourages you to report your experience to the District and/or law enforcement. LACCD has designated a Title IX and Deputy Title IX Coordinators who are specially trained to work with individuals who report sexual misconduct and provide information about resources, support services, and procedural options. You have the right to file a report with either the District or law enforcement. The LACCD administrative process and law enforcement investigation can occur simultaneously.

You can make a report at any time. However, you are encouraged to make a report as soon as possible after an incident. All reports are treated with the high level of seriousness and sensitivity they deserve. Retaliation against any person for making a report or participating in an investigation is strictly prohibited by District policy. If you decide not to make a report, or if you are unsure about reporting, you are still entitled to receive confidential support and medical care through your Colleges Student Health Center, as well as request changes to your academic and on-campus employment situations.?
