Title IX: Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct
We are committed to maintaining a safe and caring college environment at Las Positas College.
The District does not tolerate sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, including (but not limited to) sexual assault, sexual coersion, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, cyber-stalking, retaliation, discrimination based on gender and hate crimes based on gender. If you have experienced or would like to report sexual harassment/ misconduct, please click on the following link:
You have the right to decide whom and when to tell about what happened. It is also your right to have a support person (such as a sexual assault victim advocate, friend, or family member) with you while you report the incident to law enforcement and/or the Title IX Coordinator or designee.
The District’s primary concern is your safety and the safety of our campus community. If you have been affected by or witnessed sexual misconduct, you should not be discouraged from reporting the incident because you are concerned that you might be subject to disciplinary action for related student conduct violations, of drug or alcohol use. Unless the District finds the violations egregious, including, but not limited to, an action that places the health of safety of any other person at risk or involves plagiarism, cheating, or academic dishonesty, affected parties will not be subject to disciplinary action.

Retaliation is prohibited against any person who assists someone with a report of sexual misconduct, or participates in any manner in an investigation or resolution of the sexual misconduct report. Retaliation includes threats, intimidation, reprisals, and/or adverse actions related to employment or education.

As a recipient of federal funds, the District is subject to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 which prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities. Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity. All students, (as well as other persons) at the District are protected by Title IX—regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, part- or full-time status, disability, race, or national origin—in all aspects of the District’s educational programs and activities. The essence of Title IX is that an institution may not exclude, separate, deny benefits to, or otherwise treat differently any person on the basis of sex.
For more information please contact:
Any person (student, faculty, staff, or guest) who believes that discriminatory practices have been engaged in based upon gender may discuss their concerns and file informal or formal complaints of possible violations of Title IX with the following:
