Behavioral Intervention Team
We consider your safety at Chaffey College important, and one way we strive to keep our campuses safe is through our behavioral intervention team. This is a group of faculty, staff and administrators who receive and respond to concerns about student behavior.
When the team receives a report, some responses include:
- Continue to observe student behavior
- Referrals to student health and other support services
- Report concerns to appropriate parties
- Discuss with faculty or staff possible approaches to mitigate the situation
- Alert appropriate authorities, if necessary
The team contacts campus police if there is a perceived and/or clear danger to campus safety. If you’re unsure how you should handle a behavior concern, please refer to our “Who to Contact” guide.

Please use our online form if you’d like to report a behavior concern.
The team will respond within 72 hours after receiving your report. Every effort will be made to ensure confidentiality is maintained, whenever possible. Remember, this is not an emergency service. If you have an emergency situation, contact campus police, 909-652-6911.
Chaffey College students are expected at all times to act in a manner consistent with Chaffey College’s student academic integrity code and student behavior code.

Title IX – Sexual Harassment and Unlawful Discrimination
The U.S. Department of Education’s office for civil rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in educational programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
The office for civil rights requires that all students and employees to participate
in annual Title IX training and awareness of unlawful discrimination. The office vigorously
enforces Title IX to ensure that institutions that receive federal financial assistance
comply with the law. OCR evaluates, investigates, and resolves complaints alleging
sexual harassment and/or unlawful discrimination. OCR also conducts proactive investigations,
called compliance reviews, to examine potential systemic violations based on sources
of information other than complaints
