Dating violence in college
As such the College does not tolerate any form of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, (referred to as "VAWA crimes"), at on any College property or College-sponsored event.
A report of a VAWA crime is always considered a crime by Daytona State College, regardless of whether the incident is classified as a crime by a local law enforcement jurisdiction.
Please also keep in mind that reporting to the police is not the same thing as prosecution. If you decide not to notify law enforcement, please secure medical attention and contact any of the victim support resources listed in this guide.Some studies show that the oft-reported statistic that one in five women is sexually assaulted during college also applies to domestic violence, often called “dating violence” or “intimate partner violence.” Around 20% of college students report having experienced dating violence by a current partner, and college-aged women (16–24) experience the highest rate of dating violence than any other age group, according to the Justice Department.Studies also show that dating violence disproportionately affects the long-term health of women of color.We strongly encourage you to report any incident of domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking to police and Campus Safety. Reporting to law enforcement and Campus helps the College to effectively deal with these incidents, and police and Campus Safety officers are trained to deal with these situations with sensitivity and compassion.However, you can report the incident College officials known as Campus Security Authorities (CSA's), and you can choose to report anonymously and still receive your rights from the College.
