About Equity & Equal Protection

The Equity & Equal Protection Office is responsible for the administration of UCSC’s policies and procedures regarding discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, religion, disability, sex, gender, age and other protected identities. Our work includes stewarding complaint processes for students, staff, and faculty who have experienced discrimination and ensuring that members of our community can engage in protected activity free from retaliation. We are responsible for the University’s compliance with state and federal laws relating to discrimination to ensure that no member of our community is denied participation in an academic program or employment based upon a protected identity or engaging in protected activity.
