Equity and Equal Opportunity

The Equity and Equal Opportunity Office (EEO) works to ensure that all members of our UC Santa Cruz community are protected from unlawful discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Our office enforces the UC Anti-Discrimination Policy, as well as other applicable university, state, and federal guidelines for creating an inclusive and equitable environment.

In responding to reports of prohibited discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, EEO staff provide members of our community with an informed and intersectionally focused point of contact for addressing their concerns. We strive to promote the administration of all University activities consistent with the mission and values in UC Santa Cruz's Principles of Community.

Actions that constitute prohibited discrimination, harassment, or retaliation are defined here in the University's Anti-Discrimination Policy.
