De Anza College will not tolerate any form of sexual assault, including rape, on college property or at any college-sponsored event. These situations may or may not be deemed criminal offenses and therefore may have to be handled both internally through college administrative action and externally by the appropriate law enforcement agency.

If the individual decides to report the incident to a law enforcement agency, the Title IX coordinator or any college employee outside the offices of Psychological Services or Health Services, the information may be shared with other employees in order to provide support and assistance, but the college will make every effort to handle the information in the most private manner possible.
