Commitment to preventing sexual violence

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Marlene Tromp

I am deeply troubled by today's announcement by the U.S. Department of Education to reverse the guidance that has strengthened sexual violence protections on college campuses. It sends the wrong message to students across the nation.
Like UC President Janet Napolitano, I want to underscore that we here at UC Santa Cruz are committed to preventing sexual violence and sexual harassment, and responding swiftly and fairly when incidents are reported to our Title IX Office. Sexual violence and sexual harassment have no place on our campus. 
Our systemwide policies remain in full effect and will help ensure we have a campus community that is safe for students, faculty, and staff. Please visit our Title IX Office website to learn more about our efforts.
