Animals on Campus
The college bans pets or animals of any kind on college property unless the animal is a service animal prescribed to accommodate a person’s disability. The person responsible for a service animal on college property must keep direct and positive control of the animal at all times. No one may leave an animal in a vehicle on campus as this may constitute animal abuse.
Campus Sex Crimes Prevention and Registered Sex Offender Procedures
Information provided by law enforcement agencies concerning registered sex offenders (RSO) attending the college may be obtained from the office of the Vice President of Student Services.
Upon receiving written notification from the County Sheriff’s Office, or any other agency, or self- disclosure from a prospective or enrolled student, about the likely presence of a RSO on or near any college controlled facility, activity or event, the college may take such steps as are necessary and appropriate under applicable state law to inform members of the college community of the presence of RSOs. Persons likely to be present include applicants for admission, attending students, employees of the college or persons otherwise known or suspected to frequent the college or college controlled facilities, activities, or events.
The Director of Campus Public Safety shall be the designated official to receive notifications from the County Sheriff’s Office or other police agencies. Prior to notification, the Director of Campus Public Safety may, when deemed advisable, contact appropriate police and/or community corrections personnel to obtain information to guide notification actions. The Vice President of Student Services shall coordinate notification to the campus community with the Director of Campus Public Safety. Any person on campus receiving notification from a police agency shall provide a copy of such notification to the Director of Campus Public Safety. The Vice President of Student Services, or designee, shall make the appropriate notifications if the RSO is enrolled or deemed likely to enroll in, or to attend, a course, program, or other activity or event that is controlled or sponsored by the college. The Office of the Vice President of Student Services will maintain the following records on all RSOs covered under this policy:
• copies of all files, photos and other correspondence provided by other agencies;
• a record of all notifications made;
• copies of all community advisory flyers; or
• other public notices.
In the case of a college employee, the Executive Director for Human Resources, or equivalent officer, shall maintain a similar file and, with consultation of the President, shall coordinate notification.
