Reporting Options

Report to District: Any person who believes they have experienced discrimination or harassment due to gender or sex (including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, stalking) is strongly encouraged to contact a Title IX Coordinator.  A Title IX Coordinator is a non-confidential resource who can provide information about an individual’s available rights, options, resources and interim remedies to resolve reports or complaints involving sex discrimination.

Criminal:  Individuals are encouraged to report potential crimes of sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, or stalking to campus police or local law enforcement, in addition to the Title IX Coordinator.  Criminal and Title IX/administrative investigations are separate and may be conducted simultaneously:

  • Irvine Valley College Police Department:  (949) 451-5200
  • Saddleback College Police Department:     (949) 582-4444 (emergency); (949) 582-4585

Confidential Reporting: Students who do not wish to disclose to the college or District Services an incident of sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking should contact student health and wellness services or off-campus rape crisis resources.  Exceptions to confidentiality may apply in circumstances where an individual poses a threat to one’s self or others. 

Responsible Employees: In order to ensure a safe learning and working environment, all District employees who are not serving as confidential resources have an obligation to report to the appropriate Title IX Coordinator any incidents of sexual misconduct, gender-based harassment or discrimination, dating or domestic violence, or stalking that are disclosed to or observed by the District employee.  The only employees that are exempt from reporting such incidents are student workers, licensed mental health counselors and staff members of the college student health center.
