Reporting Information for Students, Faculty & Staff
UCI encourages the timely reporting of all sex offenses to the Title IX Office/Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity (OEOD). Employees in a supervisory role and faculty members are required by the policy to report all incidents and disclosures of sex offenses to OEOD.* UCI’s first objective in responding to reports of sex offenses is attending to the needs of those impacted. UCI, through its Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity (OEOD), will work with Complainants, Respondents, and potential witnesses to clearly explain the administrative complaint process, the criminal complaint process, as well as the many resource and assistance options available on campus and off.
When appropriate, OEOD can assist in helping students, faculty, or staff obtain “no contact orders,” changes to work or class schedules, housing changes, safety escorts, academic assistance, counseling, healthcare, and other services. Students who make a complaint of sexual violence will not be charged or held responsible for violations of the UCI drug or alcohol policy.
UCI is dedicated to ensuring that both those individuals alleging a violation of the policies and those accused of violating the policy are treated fairly by the University. All reports of sex offenses are taken with the utmost seriousness; individuals are provided respectful treatment, a fair process, and referred to appropriate services for assistance.
UCI recognizes the concern for privacy inherent in allegations of sex offenses. The University will maintain confidentiality regarding all dealings related to allegations of sex offenses to the greatest extent possible, and as permitted by law and University policy.
The University will take appropriate action to prevent, correct, and address behavior that is found to violate its policies prohibiting sex offenses and other regulations involving sex offenses including discipline including and up to termination or expulsion.
*These employees constitute a broad range of individuals on the campus, such as academic counselors, program directors, librarians, coaches, teaching assistants, lab supervisors, and even student supervisors like resident assistance (RAs) and student lead managers.
