CalArts is committed to treating all members of the community with dignity, empathy and respect. Any individual who is affected by discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct—whether as a complainant, a respondent, or a third party—will have equal access to support and counseling services through the Institute.

Through educational opportunities and trainings throughout the Institute, students are encouraged to continue their education on issues that directly affect them and their community. Below you will find additional resources on interpersonal violence.

This section is currently in Beta format and is our initial attempt to centralize resources, reporting options and policies related to sexual harassment and misconduct. Any feedback on how to improve this site is welcomed. Please email m-vperez@calarts.edu.


Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits excluding an individual from participating in educational programs and activities based on that person’s sex, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation. Sexual and gender-based harassment (including sexual assault and rape) are forms of such discrimination.

CalArts has compiled a list of resources and reporting options in the event of sexual or gender-based harassment (including assault). Please download and share the CalArts IX Resources and Reporting Options brochure with anyone who may find it useful.
