Why It's Important to File a Report

If you experience sexual violence, you are not to blame.

It does not matter when it happened, where it happened, or what the circumstances surrounding the incident were. It is not your fault.

By coming forward and reporting your experience, you can make a big difference. You can help make our campus and community safer for everyone, and prevent the person who hurt you from harming anyone else.

If you experience sexual violence, you can and should make a report.  There are several avenues you can take to report a sexual violence incident.

Impartial Investigations and Sanctions

Foothill College will provide a prompt, fair, and impartial investigation and resolution for every sexual misconduct complaint.

When there is a finding of responsibility for sexual misconduct, Foothill will issue appropriate sanctions and remedial measures.  As needed, remedial measures may be put in place while investigations into a Title IX complaint are being completed.

Reporting an Incident to the Police — What You Should Know

If you experience sexual violence, you may make a report with the Foothill-De Anza Police Department.  Their Foothill office is located in Room 2103 on the lower level of the Campus Center. You can call 408.924.8000 or by dialing 911 from any campus phone.

  • If you choose to, you should report your experience to the police as soon as possible after the incident.
  • Police are more likely to be able to get the evidence they need to make an arrest if you talk to them about what happened while the event is still clear in your memory.
  • The police will interview you about what happened and ask you to have your doctor or another health professional collect medical evidence of the assault.

Reporting the incident to the police does not mean you have to seek prosecution. However, the police will be able to take action to keep other students and community members safe.
