Description: Domestic violence is abusive behavior that is physical, sexual and/or psychological and is intended to establish and maintain control over a partner.

Safety and Security: Rogue Community College (RCC or the College) will not tolerate domestic violence including harassment of any employee or student while on our campuses and other facilities. This includes physical, verbal and non-verbal threats, threatening behavior, related actions against RCC employees, students, visitors, guests or other individuals by anyone on RCC property that may result in physical or emotional injury or otherwise place one’s safety and productivity at risk.

Any employee or student who threatens, harasses or abuses someone at RCC or uses college resources such as work time, offices or classrooms, phones, fax machines, mail, email or other means to threaten, harass, or abuse someone may be subject to disciplinary action, which may include dismissal and/or expulsion. Disciplinary action may also be taken against students or employees who are arrested, convicted or issued a permanent injunction as a result of domestic violence when such action has a direct connection to the student’s or employee’s performance at the College.

Restraining Orders: Individuals who apply for or obtain a protective or restraining order that lists RCC College campus(es) or other facilities as protected areas, should provide the College Security/Safety Officer with a copy of the related petition and declarations and/or the temporary or permanent protective or restraining order.

In cases of immediate threat or emergency, staff and students must call 9-1-1 as a first response.
