Every UCLA student, faculty and staff member has the right to expect a learning and working environment that is safe, fair, and balanced. In order to support students, faculty, and staff throughout a complaint process, campus services and resources for accused include:
- Help you understand your rights
- Explain and help you navigate the investigation and adjudication process
- Refer you to campus and community resources for psychological counseling, legal services, alternative housing, academic changes and other needs
- Assist with securing an interpreter or translator, if needed
As a general practice, respondent services coordinator will request written consent from you before sharing personally identifiable information that you've provided. Respondent services coordinators are not required by state or federal law to keep information confidential. If the university receives a court order to provide information, the respondent services coordinator will be legally required to disclose it. In this scenario, the coordinator will try to inform you that information will be disclosed beforehand, if possible.
The University strives to be fair in the handling of student conduct cases including allegations of sexual misconduct. You have the right to due process, meaning you have the right to be notified of the allegations and an opportunity to respond to them. You also have the right to understand the university's investigation and adjudication process. These procedures are explained in UCLA Student Conduct Procedures for Allegations of Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Domestic and Dating Violence, and Stalking. Questions concerning these procedures can be addressed to the Office of the Dean of Students, the Title IX Coordinator, or Student Legal Services.
