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.
Every person at UC Hastings has the right to pursue an academic or professional career in an atmosphere that is safe and free from prohibited acts of discrimination, harassment, or violence, including sexual abuse, rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, intimate-partner violence, stalking, sexual coercion, or other forms of sexual violence by or against students. Bigotry, harassment, or intimidation is particularly insidious when directed at a member or group of the Hastings community on the basis of actual or perceived age, color, creed, physical or mental disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, military or veteran status, or any combination of these or related factors; and, to the degree it constitutes prohibited bias activity, such conduct will also not be tolerated. This page provides Title IX resources and all discrimination or formal prohibited conduct reporting.
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
This complaint form may be used by students, faculty, staff, and others to report any form of discrimination. The complaints will be forwarded to the Title IX Coordinator. All non-Title IX matters will be routed to the appropriate department for proper investigation and resolution.
The form allows anonymous complaints; however, individuals who choose to file anonymous reports are advised that it may be very difficult for UC Hastings to follow-up on such reports, especially when corroborating information is limited. Moreover, UC 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.
