UCLA is committed to creating and maintaining a community free of all forms of exploitation, intimidation, and harassment, including sexual harassment. UCLA does not tolerate sexual harassment, which is prohibited both by law and by University policy.
The Sexual Harassment Prevention Office provides information about campus policies and procedures to any interested person. Individual consultations can be arranged for persons who need detailed information about possible sexual harassment and options for resolving concerns on campus. Individual consultations are also available for faculty members, supervisors, managers, administrators and others who need information about their responsibilities to address information about possible sexual harassment of which they may become aware. Workshops and briefings can be arranged for students, staff, faculty members, departments, or other groups of persons on campus.
