Alerts & Bulletins
SCU Campus Alert Bulletin
Situations and incidents that pose a threat to the general campus community are quickly brought to the attention of the campus community through SCU Campus Safety Alert Bulletins. The process entails physically posting bulletins in residential hall & general bulletin boards in academic buildings.
The Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education provides an official OPE Report for Santa Clara University.

Sexual and Gender Based Misconduct Policy
Santa Clara University upholds a zero tolerance policy for sexual and gender-based misconduct and does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs. When an allegation of misconduct is brought to an appropriate administrator’s attention, and a respondent is found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions will be used to reasonably ensure that such actions are never repeated.
