USC’s commitment to a safe environment
The University of Southern California expects that all members of the university community – students, faculty, staff and friends – should be able to pursue their work and education in a safe environment, free from sexual coercion, violence and sexual intimidation. The university community is committed to fostering a safe campus environment where sexual misconduct and violence are unacceptable, and where survivors or those who believe they were harmed by another in violation of this policy are provided support and avenues of redress as appropriate. All members of the university community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. The university’s sexual misconduct and sexual assault policies (available in SCampus, section E) have been developed to reaffirm these principles and to provide recourse for individuals whose rights have been violated.
If you have questions about issues relating to sexual assault, rape, or any form of sexual misconduct, we are here to help.
Please look through this site to access critical information you may need: How to get help; how to help someone who has been sexually assaulted; on-campus and off-campus resources; information about victims’ rights, and much more.

The school year just concluding (2014-2015) saw many new initiatives. We continue to seek ways to improve the conversation around these important topics, and remain firmly committed to continually improving our efforts to make clear that we do not tolerate sexual assault in any form.
