UCSC Policies and Procedures

UCSC Policy on Sexual Assault and UC Policy on Sexual Harassment


Appendix II: University Disciplinary Procedures

Applicable disciplinary action procedures if a report of sexual harassment or sexual violence results in a recommendation for disciplinary action: (At UC Santa Cruz the UCSC Policy on Sexual Assault, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence and Stalking and the UCSC Policy on Sexual Harassment are UCSC's version of the UCOP Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence.)

A. The Faculty Code of Conduct (APM - 015) as approved by the Assembly of the Academic Senate and by The Regents outlines ethical and professional standards which University faculty are expected to observe. It also identifies various forms of unacceptable behavior which are applicable in cases of sexual harassment or sexual violence. Because the forms of unacceptable behavior listed in The Faculty Code of Conduct are interpreted to apply to sexual harassment or sexual violence, a violation of the University's Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence constitutes a violation of the Faculty Code of Conduct. The University Policy on Faculty Conduct and the Administration of Discipline (APM - 016), as approved by the Assembly of the Academic Senate and by The Regents, outlines sanctions and disciplinary procedures for faculty.

B. Provisions of the policy on Non-Senate Academic Appointees/Corrective Action and Dismissal (APM - 150) (applicable to non-exclusively represented academic appointees) and collective bargaining agreements (applicable to exclusively represented academic appointees) provide for corrective action or dismissal for conduct which violates University policy.

C. The Policies Applying to Campus Activities, Organizations, and Students sets forth in Section 100.00 the types of student misconduct that are subject to discipline and the types of disciplinary actions that may be imposed for violation of University policies or campus procedures.

D. Provisions of the Personnel Policies for Staff Members, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory personnel policies (applicable to non-exclusively represented staff employees), and collective bargaining agreements (applicable to exclusively represented staff employees) prohibit conduct which violates University policy with respect to sexual harassment or sexual violence and provide for disciplinary action for violation of University policy.
