Confidentiality & Reporting

The UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment provides that any University employee who is not a Confidential Resource and who receives, in the course of employment, information that a student (undergraduate, graduate, or professional) has suffered sexual violence, sexual harassment or other prohibited behavior shall promptly notify the Title IX Officer or designee. This includes Resident Assistants, Graduate Teaching Assistants, and all other student employees, when disclosures are made to any of them in their capacities as employees.

In addition, the following who, in the course of employment, receive a report of Prohibited Conduct from any other person affiliated with the University shall notify the Title IX Officer or designee: Campus Police; Human Resource Administrators, Academic Personnel, and Title IX Professionals; Managers and Supervisors including Deans, Department Chairs, and Directors of Organized Research Units (ORU); and Faculty members.

The Title IX Coordinator will consider an individual’s request for confidentiality, and will strive to respect the individual’s request, while determining whether they can honor that request while still providing a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for all community members. 

An individual should be aware that honoring a request for confidentiality may limit the University’s ability to respond fully to an incident of sexual violence or sexual harassment.

The University has confidential resources available for its students and employees.
