Pacific's Women's Resource Center works in collaboration with campus and community entities to raise awareness and to deliver prevention education and training on sexual assault and intimate partner violence. In addition to annual, on-going activities, major new programs include: curricular infusion of sexual violence prevention education into the first-year Pacific Seminar course (see assessment results from year one HERE), mandatory on-line prevention training for incoming students and a new Healthy Relationships Peer Education Program.

As defined by University policy, sexual misconduct by or against a student is prohibited.
Sexual Misconduct is an umbrella term that includes any non-consensual sexual activity that is committed by force or fear or mental or physical incapacitation, including through the use of alcohol or drugs. Sexual misconduct can vary in its severity and consists of a range of behavior, including rape, statutory rape (sexual contact with a person under 18 years old), sexual touching, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, and conduct suggestive of attempting to commit any of the aforementioned acts. For more detailed information on the University's definitions and policies regarding sexual misconduct please refer to the Sexual Misconduct Policy or the Tiger Lore Student Handbook.
Immediate Action—The student is encouraged to discuss the assault confidentially with the Pacific Student Victim Advocate or a therapist from Counseling Services.
The student may also consider seeking assistance and support from someone he or she trusts, such as a friend, housing staff member, coach, faculty member, or other University staff; however, these individuals are not confidential resources and may be required to report the incident as required by the Clery Act.
