Sexual misconduct is clearly inconsistent with the purpose of an academic community, and is in violation of the Student Code of Conduct, as well as a violation of State and Federal laws. Sexual misconduct includes, but is not limited to unwanted verbal contact (including telephonic and voice mail) written mail (including electronic e-mail) pictorial or physical contact or a sexual nature which a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, offensive, and/or which adversely affects the learning environment of campus.
The Umpqua Community College Security Department should be notified as soon as practical of any incident of sexual assault or sexual misconduct that occurs on campus. The well being of the victim is the primary concern of the Department. The Department will offer guidance to assist with evidence preservation and will also notify the appropriate law enforcement authorities.
