- Remedial Measures: After a report or formal grievance reaches the Title IX Coordinator, the Coordinator may recommend that remedial measures be adopted. Remedial measures shall be reasonably calculated action to stop the Prohibited Conduct, prevent its reoccurrence, and protect the Complainant and may include no-contact orders.
- Inquiry or Formal Investigation: In addition to remedial measures, the Title IX Coordinator may recommend that a Title IX Investigator conduct an inquiry or formal investigation.
The University of California Hastings College of the Law shall not discriminate unlawfully on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, disability, age, sex or sexual orientation.
This nondiscrimination policy covers admissions, access and treatment in Hastings-sponsored programs and activities. Any member of the UC Hastings College of the Law community who believes he or she has been subjected to Prohibited Conduct in violation of the Sexual Misconduct Policy (“Policy”) is encouraged to report such a concern to Title IX Coordinator Andrea Bing or to the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. Additionally, any person with knowledge of Prohibited Conduct is encouraged to report the concern to the Title IX Coordinator.
Except for UC Hastings-recognized confidential resources, the following UC Hastings members with knowledge of unreported Prohibited Conduct (or potentially Prohibited Conduct) must report such allegations to the Title IX Coordinator: (a) faculty and teaching staff, including adjunct faculty, lecturers in law, and visiting faculty, and (b) administrative staff.
A report of Prohibited Conduct need not be in writing.
Submitting a Formal Prohibited Conduct Grievance
A formal complaint may be submitted using the Sexual Misconduct Grievance Form. A witness to Prohibited Conduct may submit an anonymous report using the Silent-Witness Form. The Title IX Coordinator will receive all formal Prohibited Conduct Grievances and reports of Prohibited Conduct.
Report as a Silent Witness
The Silent-Witness Form is available to you in order to facilitate the reporting of potential Title IX violations (See Hastings’ Policy on Discrimination, Protected-Status Harassment, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Assault and Violence Related to Students).
The form is administered by a third party and any information you submit in the form is anonymized and encrypted so that the Hastings official receiving the information cannot link the tip to you.
Notwithstanding the availability of this form, individuals who choose to file anonymous reports are advised that it may be very difficult for Hastings to follow-up on such reports, especially when corroborating information is limited. Moreover, Hastings reserves the right to not respond to inquiries that are inappropriate or for which there is insufficient information to respond. Abuse of the form will not be tolerated.
Most importantly, because the information you submit is completely anonymized and encrypted, it will be your responsibility to save the ID, password, and link you are provided in order for you to be able to log back in and follow-up on your tip, including retrieving any responses from the College or possibly follow-up questions on your tip. Because the College does not receive any identifying information on you, follow-up is only possible through the unique ID, password, and link that is associated with your submission.
Please remember to log back in and check for follow-up, even if you do not make any inquiries, because the College may have critical follow-up questions for you which you otherwise will never receive.
The Title IX Coordinator will receive all formal Prohibited Conduct Grievances and reports of Prohibited Conduct.
It is a violation of UC Hastings College of the Law policy to retaliate against any person making a complaint or report of Prohibited Conduct or against any person participating in the investigation of any such allegation. Retaliation should be reported promptly to the Title IX Coordinator.
