If you have been accused of an incident of sexual harassment, sexual violence (sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking), retaliation and other prohibited behavior as defined by the UC Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Policy, there are campus services available to help you understand your rights and the investigation and adjudication process.

UC Riverside has designated individuals-known as respondent services coordinators-who can:
  • Help you understand your rights
  • Explain and help you navigate the investigation and adjudication processes, including formal hearings
  • Refer you to campus and community resources, such as for psychological counseling, legal services (including help understanding and complying with protection orders), alternative housing, academic changes and other needs         
  • Assist with securing an interpreter or translator, if needed.

It is important to note that respondent support services coordinators are not legally required to maintain confidentiality.  However, as a general practice, the coordinators will request signed consent from you before disclosing personally identifiable information.
