IMPORTANT: Send this post to your family and Oxy alums!

March 2, 2013

Oxy students: please email this post to your family and any Oxy alums you may know!

On Monday, 2/25/2013, the Oxy Administration was notified of a sexual assault that had occurred on Sunday, 2/24/2013. The Oxy Administration did not share this information with the campus until local media reported about the incident. At that time, Dean Avery sent an email declaring that the student rapist was determined not to constitute a continuous threat. The Oxy Sexual Assault Coalition (OSAC) has been advocating for a campus-wide emergency alert to be sent out when any student reports a sexual assault. While the administration agreed to our 12 demands, they did not follow through with the promise to execute #7: “Use Oxy’s Crime Alert System to Inform Campus of Reported Sexual Assaults.” Students are not safe unless there is an effective system that alerts the campus population to the continuous threat that is represented by a rapist. Rape is a crime.

To show that parents and Oxy alum agree with students and faculty on the severity of this issue, we want to institute an email/phone call campaign. The purpose of this email or phone call is to support the safety of Oxy students. Contact the dean, president, and campus safety to voice your concerns and let them know that this is unacceptable. Let them know that you have invested in them and its time for them to invest in the safety of our community.

*If you choose to send an email, please send it to all three emails. If you choose to call, we encourage you to call all three numbers as well, or ask that your message be relayed to the other phone numbers as well.

President:
president@oxy.edu
323-259-2691

Dean of students:

Campus Safety:

Let’s show some solidarity!

    Thank you for organizing this response to the Oxy administration’s inadequate position on sexual assault. As a parent of an Oxy student, I will contact the Dean, President, and Campus Safety, and join you in your efforts to push for full implementation of the twelve demands.
