Title IX: What To Do

Immediate Action

  • Get to a safe place.
  • Call a friend or family member to be with you.
  • It is advisable to report a sexual assault, even an unsuccessful attempt. The information you provide may prevent another person from being assaulted.
  • When you report a sexual assault, any information you can remember about the attack will be helpful—the assaulter's physical characteristics, voice, clothes, car, or even an unusual smell.
  • If you have been sexually assaulted, you should call the police as soon as possible.
  • Do not bathe or change your clothes. Semen, hair, and material under fingernails or on your clothing all may be useful in identifying and prosecuting the assaulter.
  • If the assault occurred on campus, call LACC Campus Police at (323) 662-5276.
  • If the assault occurred off campus, call 911.
  • It is very helpful to contact a rape treatment center where qualified staff members may assist you in dealing with your trauma. If you are unable to make the contact yourself, have a friend, family member, or the police make the call.
  • Finally, it is important to remember that many individuals will mistakenly blame themselves for the assault. However, being sexually assaulted is not your fault—the crime has been committed by the person who assaulted you.

What Are My Options?

  • If you are a victim of sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct, you have options on how you'd like to proceed.
  • The most important factor is that you are safe and are not in imminent danger. If you believe you are in danger, call 911.
