Sexual assault is a violation of the University's standard of conduct for students as outlined in our sexual misconduct policy, as well as a violation of the law, and yet, sadly, we know that Pepperdine is not exempt from having some of its students victimized in this way. In addition to sexual assault, Pepperdine takes forms of sexual misconduct seriously and supports students coming forward who are survivors of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.
We are here for you. Whether you are a survivor, a friend trying to help, or a member of the community who would like to make a positive difference, we hope our resources will be useful to you. At the Counseling Center, we provide free, confidential services for survivors and friends trying to help. In addition to counseling, our staff is equipped to walk you through all of your resources and reporting options. Please call (310) 506-4210 for an appointment. Pepperdine's Title IX website is another excellent resource for information on the following topics:
- What to do if you or a friend are sexually assaulted
- How to help a friend
- Reporting resources
- Disciplinary Procedures
- Educational Resources
- How to get involved with campus prevention efforts
