Reporting Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment
Procedures for Reporting
A. Reporting Sexual Violence or Sexual Harassment
1. It is your right to choose whether to report sexual violence or sexual harassment.
a. Any person may report sexual violence or sexual harassment, including complainants as well as people who witnessed or learned of the conduct.
b. You may choose to report the incident right away, after taking some time to get support and take care of yourself, or you may choose to never report the incident.
c. You may choose to report the incident to the University, law enforcement, both, or neither. It's entirely up to you.
2. If you already know that you would like to file a report, follow the instructions in the 'File a Report' section below.
If you are unsure if you would like to file a report, there are several confidential resources that can help you make an informed decision. Whether you choose to report the crime or not, you are encouraged to contact the University CARE advocate, where all intervention services are confidential, free, and available to any UC ANR staff, academic, or others who experience sexual violence in the context of a UC ANR program.
Please be aware that all University employees are required to report all incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence against students to the Title IX Office. Additionally, certain University officials – supervisors, academics and other officials – are required to report all incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence. If you prefer to stay anonymous, consider talking with one of the confidential resources before making an official complaint.
If you choose to file a report with the University, the University will take prompt action to respond to your complaint. The University will employ appropriate supportive, preventive, and corrective measures, including imposing disciplinary sanctions against the accused (referred to as the respondent) if the respondent is a UC ANR employee and if the University determines the respondent violated University policy.
3. File a Report
UC ANR community members who have experienced sexual violence, sexual harassment or sex discrimination may file a report with the University, law enforcement, both, or neither.
Any person may report (whether or not the complainant); reports may be made in person, by mail/email, or by telephone using any of the reporting options listed here. The report may be made at any time (including off-hours):
