UCI Forward is UCI’s COVID-19 information website. UCI is commitment to the well-being of our community as we ramp up campus operations. Get up-to-date information about testing, vaccines, COVID-19 response, and working remotely. Working together, each of us doing our part, we can move UCI Forward.
This is a curated list of anti-racism resources provided by the UCI End Racism Initiative, a grassroots collective started in June 2020 when we were reminded that systemic anti-Black racism is a persistent, pervasive, and lethal issue that plagues our society. Find anti-racism resources on campus, how to report a concern and more.
Equal Opportunity and Diversity
The UCI Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity (OEOD) is responsible for the University’s compliance with federal and state laws and University policies and procedures regarding discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, and sexual violence. OEOD works to promote and integrate the principles of equal opportunity, affirmative action, nondiscrimination, and inclusive excellence at UCI.
UCI has nondiscrimination policies for both employment and student-related matters. UCI faculty, staff, and students who believe that they have been discriminated against have the right to seek resolution through OEOD, which offers both formal and informal resolution options.
Campus Assault Resources and Education
Established in 2005, the UCI CARE Office provides free and confidential support services to members of the UCI community impacted by sexual assault, relationship abuse, family violence and/or stalking. UCI CARE aims to end these forms of power-based personal violence by engaging the campus community in education, programming, and transformative action.
Sexual Harassment/ Title IX
The Sexual Harassment/Title IX Officer (SHO) is responsible for coordinating the University’s compliance with federal and state discrimination and sexual harassment laws, as well as investigations of sex offenses. As such, the SHO provides educational programs regarding discrimination, sexual harassment and sex offense prevention for students, staff and faculty on the campus and at the medical center. The SHO responds to, investigates, and/or seeks resolution to allegations of discrimination, sexual harassment or sex offenses, and serves as an information resource on issues of sexual harassment.
The University of California, Irvine is committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which all persons who live, work, and learn in our campus community can be free of sexual assault, sexual misconduct, relationship violence, stalking, and retaliation. Every member of the University community should be aware that sexual violence is prohibited by law as well as our University policy and will not be tolerated.
Abusive Conduct and Bullying
Abusive conduct and bullying behaviors are inconsistent with the values of the University and should be addressed directly and comprehensively. Regardless of circumstances or setting, staff at all levels found to be engaging in abusive conduct should be held accountable.
Do you have a complaint to report? Submit an OEOD Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, or Sexual Violence Report.
Reporting Acts of Intolerance
We strive for a campus and a world free of discrimination, intolerance and hate. We are equally committed to freedom of expression, critical inquiry, civil dialogue and mutual respect. If you experience or observe behavior that is inconsistent with our Principles of Community, please report it.
Mental Health Counseling Services
The mission of the Wellness, Health & Counseling Services cluster is to support the campus’ goal of being first in class by providing services that support students’ physical and mental health and wellness to enhance their academic success. We believe that academic excellence is facilitated when students have a strong mind, a healthy body, an enlivened spirit and a clear aspiration, nurtured in a supportive environment.
