Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence Title IX

The University of California cherishes the free and open exchange of ideas and expansion of knowledge. Maintaining this freedom and openness requires objectivity, mutual trust, and confidence; it requires the absence of coercion, intimidation, or exploitation. The principal responsibility for maintaining these conditions must rest upon those members of the university community who exercise the greatest authority and leadership: faculty, managers, and supervisors.

The university has therefore instituted a number of measures designed to protect the campus community from sexual harassment and sexual violence. Students, faculty, and staff who would like information or a consultation about gender-based discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence; would like to understand resources and reporting options; would like to file a formal complaint; would like to request a training session; and/or would like copies of the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment and/or the UC Santa Cruz Procedures for Reporting and Responding to Reports of Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment may consult the Title IX Office website or contact Isabel Dees, Title IX Officer, at (831) 459-2462, or via email at Individuals seeking additional resources and information regarding rights and reporting options for those impacted by sexual harassment and sexual violence may also consult the CARE website.
