UC and UCR Policies
Everyone at UCR — students, faculty, and staff — has the right to a safe learning
and working environment. Each of us plays a critical role in ensuring the university
is a safe place, and should know the rules of being part of the UCR community.
- UCR is committed to fostering a community where everyone works and learns together
in a place free of harassment, exploitation and intimidation.
- UCR does not tolerate sexual violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence,
domestic violence, or stalking.
- Sexual violence violates both UC and UCR policy as well as federal and state laws.
UCR will respond promptly to reports of sexual violence and take appropriate action
to prevent it and when necessary, take disciplinary action.
- Incoming undergraduate and graduate students receive general sexual violence and sexual
assault education. Faculty and staff are required to take sexual harassment training
every two years.
UC's policies and codes of conduct spell out the rights and responsibilities of students
and employees in ensuring that UC is a safe environment, and how the university addresses
reports of sexual violence and sexual harassment.
