UC Berkeley’s Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) is committed to fostering a campus climate in which members of our community are protected from all forms of discrimination and harassment on the basis of protected categories, including race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender, gender expression, gender identity, gender transition status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition (cancer-related or genetic characteristics), genetic information (including family medical history), ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or service in the uniformed services, including protected veterans, as well as sexual harassment, sexual violence, and gender-based harassment and discrimination.  OPHD monitors compliance with nondiscrimination policies, implements complaint resolution processes, and helps campus departments pursue best practices for fostering a discrimination-free climate for learning, researching and doing administrative work.

OPHD’s work emphasizes a commitment to safety, fairness, due process, and trauma-informed practices.
