Effective July 1, 1993, amendments to the Campus Security Act require that all institutions of higher education have in place campus sexual assault programs established to prevent sex offenses. Institutions must also establish and publish in their annual security report, procedures to be followed when a sex offense has occurred.
It is a violation of Everett Community College regulations to commit a sexual assault (including rape); sexual assault is defined as attempted or unwanted sexual activity. Rape is defined as sexual penetration without mutual consent.
In addition to possible civil and criminal charges, any member of the Everett Community College community who is found guilty of sexual assault - following appropriate Everett Community College judicial proceedings - will be subject to disciplinary procedures (Student Code of Conduct). Termination of employment or dismissal from the college is the maximum penalty Everett Community College may impose.
