Report an Incident

Anyone can report an incident of discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence by sending an email to ask_ophd@berkeley.edu(link sends e-mail)

Please know that if you are forwarding a report that you saw on social media and your knowledge of that report is limited to what you have read or seen on social media and you do not have direct knowledge of what occurred, please let us know so that we do not work to contact you for more information.

 

Making a Report

OPHD reads every report brought to our attention.  In order to help us respond to the report, please include as much of the following information as possible:

  • Your name
  • The name of the person experiencing the harassment or discrimination (if not you)
  • The name of the person who is alleged to have committed the harassment or discrimination
  • A brief description of what happened or of the concern

 

What Happens After You Make a Report

Once we receive a report, we send an email to the individual who experienced the harassment or discrimination.  In that email we include an invitation to meet with us to discuss what steps our office can take to address the situation and we provide campus and community resources available to assist.
