Sexual Violence Education & Prevention


MCLA is committed to creating and maintaining a safe, healthy learning, living, and working environment where all forms of sexual violence, sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and retaliation are strictly prohibited. As part of the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization, the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act mandates compliance training for all members of college communities. In addition to training related to the Campus SaVE Act, other federal laws have requirements to which MCLA must adhere: Title IX, the Clery Act, as well as guidance documents issued by the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights and the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. In accordance with each of these mandates, MCLA is taking a proactive stance to educate our community regarding issues of sexual violence, methods of prevention, reporting such incidents, and the resources available to support survivors. To this end, the MCLA community including all students, staff, and faculty are required to complete online training to address and prevent sexual violence.
