Getting Help: Prevention, Response, & Support 

UC Berkeley is dedicated to preventing and addressing sexual harassment and sexual violence on campus. We believe in fostering a culture that prioritizes consent and respect, and responds to and supports survivors and their allies. As part of these efforts, we are working to engage all members of the university community to create a healthy and inspiring environment where violence in any form is not tolerated.

According to UC Policy, sexual violence includes stalking, dating and domestic violence, and sexual assault. All these behaviors are forms of sexual harassment.   These affect many lives - both directly and indirectly - regardless of one's identity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, religion, citizenship status, marital status, ability, education level or affiliation. 

If you’ve experienced sexual harassment and/or sexual violence, know – first and foremost – that what happened is not your fault. You deserve safety and respect, always. You may be experiencing a wide range of feelings such as shock, fear, disbelief, recurring memories, outrage, confusion, sadness, despair, and anger. All of your feelings are valid. Whether you tell someone, who you tell, and how you tell your story is entirely your decision. Regardless of what you decide, there are many people at UC Berkeley who are committed to helping students, faculty, and staff in need.

Confidential advocates bring a non-judgmental, caring approach to exploring all options, rights, and resources.
