Information on Reporting Incidents

Section 1

If you have witnessed, experienced, or been informed of an act of sexual harassment, sexual violence, or discrimination please do report it to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity, the UCI Police Department, or both. 

Report an Incident

Students, Faculty, and Staff: If you are unsure of whether you should report an incident to OEOD or the police, you can schedule a meeting with the Ombuds Office or a confidential CARE Advocate. A confidential CARE Advocate can provided detailed information about your options related to sexual harassment or sexual violence incidents, schedule and accompany you to meetings with the police and OEOD, and answer any questions you may have. Any information discussed with the Care Advocate will not be shared with anyone without your permission*.

The Ombuds Office is another confidential resource where students, faculty, and staff are provided with a safe and comfortable environment to discuss complaints, concerns or problems. The office acts as an independent, impartial resource, and does not serve as an office of notice or record for the university. The office does not conduct formal investigations but can instead refer you to the appropriate office, if necessary. Any information discussed with the Ombuds Office will not be shared with anyone without your permission*.
