Sexual Misconduct

Orange Coast College is committed to creating a safe and inclusive campus environment. Members of the Orange Coast College community, guests, and visitors are entitled to an educational, working, and living environment free from sex and gender-based discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking.

Coast Community College District Board Policy BP 5910 Sexual Misconduct and Administrative Procedure AP 5910 Sexual Misconduct outline the process to address alleged violations of prohibited conduct by students. Orange Coast College will provide a prompt and equitable response, including:

  • Inform the impacted parties of the availability of supportive measures,
  • Consider the impacted parties' wishes with respect to supportive measures,
  • Explain the process for filing a formal complaint, and
  • Take reasonable steps to end the discrimination, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects.

Supportive measures are individualized services to help restore the impacted parties' access to Orange Coast College’s programs and activities. Examples include academic assistance, contact limitations, employment assistance, referral to counseling or other healthcare services, and safety planning, including on-campus Public Safety escorts.
