Administrative Reporting

Any survivor has the choice of reporting to the campus administration under UCSF policy—this process is separate from legal proceedings. UCSF encourages anyone who has experienced sexual assault, relationship violence, or stalking to report the offense as soon as possible after its occurrence in order for appropriate and timely action to be taken. When an administrative complaint is made, the Title IX Coordinator conducts an investigation as to whether a violation of policy took place. For more information about administrative procedures contact the Title IX Coordinator.

Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) Responsibilities

  • Supports the University policy prohibiting discrimination and harassment of any person on the basis of their membership in a protected category. As part of this work, OPHD responds to complaints from persons who believe they have been subjected to discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation on the basis of a protected category or activity.
  • Questions regarding the UC Policy on harassment or discrimination, or reports/inquiries from those feeling they have been subjected to harassment or discrimination may be directed to their office in one of the following ways:

A survivor has the right to have a CARE Advocate present while making a complaint to the Title IX office.

No Contact Directive

Any person with reasonable justification may request a no contact directive. No contact directives are not considered a sanction, but rather a lawful directive which may be issued verbally or in writing by a university official acting in the performance of their official duties. Such directives are appropriate when there is reason to believe that future contact will result in property damage, disruption, harassment, intimidation or threatening conduct, or physical abuse.
