Adams State University sends an email to all students/faculty/staff at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters with links to the Sexual Misconduct policy, resources, contacts for responsible offices, etc. We provide the same information in our Vector Solutions training, in-person training to athletes, and in-person training in all First Year Seminar classes.  Last year we had "It's On Us", a national sexual assault and domestic violence prevention education provider, conduct 2 days of training on campus.  We also conduct intermittent informational tabling. And, this year we implemented the USafeUs app that provides free and easily accessible contact information and safety resources and strategies through a phone app unique to Adams State.

ACC provides the following information to students, employees, and the community related to sexual misconduct and other support. The information can be in several areas of the ACC website and in multiple office locations throughout all three (3) campuses in a variety of print and handout material(s):

If you are a victim of a sexual assault, you may request a medical forensic exam (formerly known as a S.A.N.E., sexual assault nurse examiner, Exam).  This is important if you think you may want to seek legal action now or in the future.  It is vital you obtain medical treatment as soon as possible and do not bathe, shower, douche, or change clothes until given permission by medical personnel.  You can have the exam without having to report the assault to law enforcement.  The cost of the forensic examination will not be billed to you. You may be responsibility for medical treatment or follow up, if needed.  

The College has an agreement with the following providers for the exam:

Littleton Adventist Hospital
7700 S Broadway, Littleton, CO 80122

The College has developed an annual educational campaign consisting of presentations that include distribution of educational materials to all students new the ACC at Student Orientation. Student Orientation is required for all students new to Arapahoe Community College (ACC). Additionally, ACC engages in educational programming to prevent domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. This education is shared and promoted to students, faculty, staff, and administrators.

This last year, educational programming happened both actively and passively. It consists of primary prevention and awareness programs for incoming students and continuing students that:
•    Identifies domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking as prohibited conduct;
•    Defines what behavior constitutes domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking; 
•    Defines what behavior and actions constitute consent to sexual activity in the State of Colorado;
•    Provides safe and positive options for bystander intervention that may be carried out by an individual to prevent harm or intervene when there is a risk of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking against a person other than the bystander. 
•    Provides information on risk reduction so that students and employees may recognize warning signs of abusive behavior and how to avoid potential attacks. 
•    Provides information on the procedures the college will adhere to after a sex offense occurs.

ACC promotes awareness and education for all employees, regardless of employment category. This occurs in two ways. All new employees receive a new employee orientation which covers civil rights, including Title IX and Sexual Misconduct. Employees are taught the ACC community has the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the ACC community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. ACC is committed to a zero tolerance policy for sex/gender-based misconduct. Annually, all employees participate in learning through an online platform. Additionally, employee learn that they have an ethical obligation to report any incidences they are aware of concerning discrimination and/or harassment and are provided with information on how to report an incident.

The annual training is a reinforcement of Arapahoe Community College's prohibition for all forms of discrimination and harassment including those that violate federal and state law or the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education Board Policy and System Procedure.
