Los Angeles Valley College

H.A.R.T. Vision & Strategy

Vision/Mission Statement

The Healthy Advocacy Campus Response Teams’ (HART) mission is to make contact with every campus community and provide the support, assistance, and leadership to make out campuses safe for students and employees to work and learn.


Our responsibility is to provide every individual on campus support if needed and our commitment is to ensure that all campus communities develop respect and tolerance for each other and each other’s cultures.


Best Practice and Benchmarks

A District Committee has been convened and chaired by the District Office Compliance Officer, within the Office of Diversity Programs. The committee’s role is to assist campuses further, develop the infrastructure, protocol, policies and services that address issues of violence and assault.


The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) is a partner in the Los Angeles College Consortium Project (LACCP). This is in keeping with the Internal Memorandum of Understanding signed by the LACCD on December 19, 2005.


District Committee

The District Committee’s membership includes individual campus Team Leads, a General Counsel Representatives and the District Office Compliance Officer.


The Compliance Officer will oversee the committee’s development of a District-wide approach to addressing violence and assault issues, and their impact on our campuses. The committee will support LACCD in achieving best practice; and through the committee, the LACCD will become a more effective partner in the LACCP.
