III. Identifying Hate Crimes
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (P.L. 110-315) requires the University to maintain a missing student notification policy and protocol for on campus residents. The University of La Verne takes student safety very seriously. To this end, the following policy and procedure has been established to assist in locating La Verne students living in University owned on-campus housing who, based on the facts and circumstances known to the administration, the University has determined to be missing.
A student shall be deemed missing when the student is absent from the University for more than 24 hours without any known reason. Any member of the campus community should report a missing student by filing a missing person report with any of the following offices:
At the beginning of each academic year, the University of La Verne will inform students residing in on-campus housing that the University will notify either a parent or an individual selected by the student not later than 24 hours after the time the student is determined to be missing. This information will include the following:
If the University of La Verne's Campus Security or law enforcement personnel has been notified and makes a determination that a student who is the subject of a missing person report has been missing for more than 24 hours and has not returned to campus, the University will initiate the emergency contact procedures in accordance with the student's designation. The University will follow the following notification procedure for a missing student who resides in on-campus housing:
Upon notification from any entity that any student may be missing, the University of La Verne may use any of the following resources to assist in locating the student. These resources may be used in any order and combination. Through the Student Housing and Residential Education (SHARE) Office, the Resident Assistant or other University administrator with key access may be asked to assist in physically locating the student by keying into the student's assigned room and talking with known associates.
The University of La Verne does not tolerate sexual assault in any form. The University will promptly investigate all allegations of sexual assault and take appropriate action when necessary.
"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
-Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act
Title IX prohibits gender discrimination in all programs and activities of a University such as the University of La Verne. Although two of the most common applications of the law are athletics and sexual harassment, Title IX also applies to admissions, financial aid, academic matters, career services, counseling and medical services, and all other programs and activities available to students at the University of La Verne. If you have additional questions or concerns about Title IX, you can contact the Title IX Coordinator.
The University of La Verne prohibits sexual misconduct. Consistent with its commitment to addressing sexual misconduct, the University complies with Title IX of the Higher Education Amendment of 1972 and the California Sex Equity in Education Act, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities.
Sexual misconduct comprises a broad range of behaviors, including but not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic partner violence, stalking (including cyber-stalking), and sexual exploitation. Sexual misconduct that is not sexual in nature but is based on gender, gender identity, gender expression, sex- or gender-stereotyping, or sexual orientation also violates University policy. Such behavior is also prohibited by law.
This policy applies both to on-campus and off-campus conduct. In particular, off-campus behaviors that have an actual or potential adverse impact on any member of the University community or the University fall under this policy.
Anyone who believes they have been subjected to sexual misconduct is encouraged to report these incidents. Upon receiving a report, the University will respond promptly, equitably, and thoroughly. In addition, the University will take steps to prevent the recurrence of the alleged sexual misconduct and correct its effects, if appropriate.
Any student who individually or in concert with others participates in any of the following is subject to University discipline as well as criminal prosecution:
Any person who believes that he or she has been victimized by such acts is encouraged to report such an incident to University officials, law enforcement officials, or both. He or she will be supported by the University in a confidential manner.
Any incident of sexual assault can be reported to any faculty or staff member on campus, including the following: Dean and Associate Dean of Student Affairs, Campus Safety Staff, Campus Ministry, Health Services, and the Housing and Residence Life Staff.
Violations of La Verne's policy on sexual assault will be subject to various sanctions including, but not limited to, the following: cancellation of housing contract; suspension from the University; dismissal from the University.
Both the accused and the accuser will be informed of any campus disciplinary procedure. The University will make changes in a victim's academic and living situation, if at all possible, in order to reduce the trauma of the incident. The complete policy is contained in the University Handbook.
