Sexual Assault Policy
It is the policy of the San Mateo Country Community College District to educate all students, faculty, and staff on the prevention of sexual assault. The District and Colleges will provide information to all faculty, staff, and registered students on the definition of sexual assault, how to prevent it, and how to report it if assaulted.
"Sexual assault" includes but is not limited to rape, forced sodomy, forced oral copulation, rape by foreign object, sexual battery, or threat of sexual assault.
Any sexual assault or physical abuse, including, but not limited to, rape, as defined by California law, whether committed by a student, faculty, staff, administrator, visitor, or invitee of College of San Mateo, occurring on College property, or an off-campus site or facility maintained by the College, or on grounds or facilities maintained by a student organization, is a violation of College policies and regulations, and is subject to all applicable punishment, including criminal procedures and employee or student discipline procedures.
Information and literature is available in the office of the Vice President, Student Services, the Health Center and the Security Office.
Any faculty, staff member, or student who has been sexually assaulted should immediately contact the Health Center, 574-6396, or the Security Office, 574-6415.
