Policies and Regulations
COCC has established policies and regulations to maintain a safe campus. These policies and regulations are grouped into four main categories: vehicle regulations, student policies, resident policies, and general policies. For questions regarding student policies, please contact the Office of Student Life. For questions regarding resident policies, please contact the Office of Residents Life. For questions regarding vehicle regulations and general policies, please contact the Campus Public Safety Department. Public Safety Officers have the authority to enforce all campus policies. COCC also recognizes the violation of any Oregon law (Oregon Revised Statute) and/or federal law, while on campus, as a policy violation.
Safe Zones are confidential and safe environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals. The Safe Zone symbol displayed around the campus identifies individuals who are compassionate, understanding, and committed to helping create an open and accepting environment for all in the COCC community. Several members of the Campus Public Safety Department have attended Safe Zone training and are available to speak with. For more information, please see the Multicultural Department.
