The WRRC works in collaboration with a number of campus departments to ensure that students, faculty, and staff understand the variety of resources available to them when navigating situations involving hate and bias and sexual and dating violence. The WRRC serves as a confidential resource for those navigating or supporting those navigating sexual and/or dating violence. Please do not hesitate to connect with a staff member at the WRRC if you or someone you know needs support.
Reporting Hate & Bias
As reflected in our Principles of Community, at UC Davis we are committed to confronting and rejecting “all manifestations of discrimination, including those based on race, ethnicity, gender, age, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, status within or outside the university, or any of the other differences among people which have been excuses for misunderstanding, dissension or hatred.” Accordingly, UC Davis strives to maintain an inclusive and diverse work and learning environment free of hate and bias.

Reporting Sexual Dating Violence
UC Davis community members who have experienced or witnessed an incident of sexual violence or sexual harassment may file a report with the University, law enforcement, both, or neither.
To file a report with the University:
- In Person: Contact the Harassment & Discrimination Assistance and Prevention Program (HDAPP)
- Email or Telephone: Contact HDAPP
- Online: Submit a Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment (SVSH) Incident Report Form
- Responsible Employees: Contact HDAPP
It is your right to choose whether to report sexual violence. There are several confidential resources that can help you make an informed decision regarding reporting. You may choose to report the incident right away, after taking some time to get support and take care of yourself, or you may choose to never report the incident. You may choose to report the incident to the University, law enforcement, both, or neither. It's entirely up to you. If you are a student, you should not be deterred from reporting a sexual violence because you were intoxicated or under the influence of other drugs at the time of the incident. Complainants who disclose they were under the influence of alcohol or other drugs as part of the process of reporting sexual violence will not be disciplined.
Whether you choose to report the crime or not, you are encouraged to contact the University CARE advocate where all intervention services are confidential, free, and available to any UC Davis student, staff, or faculty.
All University employees, including student employees, are required to report all incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence against students to the Title IX Office. Additionally, certain University officials – supervisors, faculty, coaches and other officials – are required to report all incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence. If you prefer to stay anonymous, consider talking with one of the UCD confidential resources before making an official complaint.
