Report 2013-124: Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence: California Universities Must Better Protect Students by Doing More to Prevent, Respond to, and Resolve Incidents (Release Date: June 2014)
Recommendation #37 To: University of California, Los Angeles
All universities should appropriately post the university's policy on sexual harassment. The policy should be posted prominently in the university's main administrative building and in other areas on campus where notices are posted, including key locations such as residence halls and athletic facilities. Similarly, the notice of nondiscrimination should be posted prominently throughout the university. If, because of the length of the policy on sexual harassment, it is not effective to post it in its entirety, the universities should post summary information that explains how students can access the full policy.
6-Month Agency Response
The University's policy on sexual harassment and notice of nondiscrimination is posted (in hard copy) in the residence halls and campus administrative offices, including, but not limited to, the Office of the Dean of Students, academic offices, UCPD, CAPS, and Athletics. Additionally, summary information explaining how to access the full sexual harassment policy is posted on digital screens in the residence halls; Murphy Hall, the campus' administrative building; recreation facilities and other university venues, and is included in printed materials provided to students, staff, and faculty and community members. The entire Student Conduct Code was included in student orientation materials, along with a Bruin Support and Safety brochure which provides information on confidential resources, reporting options, and how to file a complaint.
