Title IX Resources and Contact Information

Whether you are seeking help right after an incident of sexual harassment or sexual violence, or if you are looking for support for a past incident, free and confidential, help may be available both on-campus and off-campus for all parties.

On Campus Resources

Community Safety

The Department of Community Safety is available as a first option to report any incidents of crime or violence on campus. The Department of Community Safety can assist in filing a report with law enforcement agencies, providing an escort service on campus to any student, etc. Contact the Department of Community Safety.

Student Health Center

The Student Health Center provides psychological counseling services and medical treatment. Psychological counseling services with Health Center Therapists are confidential. The Student Health Center can provide medical care but, unfortunately, is not equipped for forensic examinations. To initiate an exam, please connect with a local law enforcement agency and/or a local crisis center. See Off-Campus Resources for additional information.

While most health services are confidential, under California Penal Code Section 11160-11163.2, the Student Health Center must notify law enforcement of suspected self-inflicted injuries or injuries caused by abuse or assault.

Title IX Coordinator

The Title IX Coordinator also serves as the Senate Bill 493 Coordinator.

All parties may contact the Title IX Coordinator with questions or to discuss the complaint process and/or the process for filing a report/complaint of sexual harassment, discrimination, or sexual violence involving a current Sierra College student or employee. The Title IX Coordinator may be reached at (916) 660-7006 or via email at EEOT9@sierracollege.edu. Please note that the Title IX Coordinator is not a confidential resource as defined below (under Terms and Definitions).
