UC Berkeley is committed to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic and research excellence, and to creating a community where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of discrimination, harassment, exploitation or intimidation.
The Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) contributes to this university commitment by overseeing campus compliance with University of California and UC Berkeley policies prohibiting protected category discrimination and harassment (including sexual harassment and violence). Our oversight of these policies encompasses responding to and resolving reports of harassment and discrimination from students, staff, faculty and visitors that are related to protected class and civil rights policies.
We find UC Berkeley to be an exciting and vibrant community of individuals dedicated to contributing to the betterment of our local, national and international communities. Join us in our ongoing commitment to take the individual steps necessary to create a more just, fair and equitable community. Explore our website and meet our staff.
We look forward to meeting you!
