Reaffirmation of UC Santa Barbara Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment

February 15, 2017

Dear Members of our Campus Community,

We at UC Santa Barbara are dedicated to maintaining and enhancing a safe, supportive, and respectful community where all individuals can live, learn, and work together in an atmosphere free of harassment and discrimination. In keeping with these values, I am writing to reaffirm our commitment to preventing sexual violence and sexual harassment, and to reinforce our campus and systemwide policies and procedures.

An important part of our efforts includes mandatory reporting requirements, comprehensive training for staff and faculty, and confidential support services. Please review the detailed information below from our UC Santa Barbara Title IX & Sexual Harassment Policy Compliance Office.

Preventing and responding to sexual violence and sexual harassment is a responsibility we all share, and enhancing the culture and climate of our campus requires the diligence of our entire community. Please join me in reaffirming our commitment.

Sincerely,

Henry T. Yang
Chancellor
