The Committee's Charge
The Chancellor's Senate/Administration Committee on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment, formed in April of 2016, was tasked with reviewing and making recommendations for improving all campus services, policies and practices relating to the prevention, remediation, adjudication, and sanctioning of sexual violence, harassment and assault against students, staff and faculty on the UC Berkeley campus.
The Committee had originally planned on completing its recommendations by November 2016. That timeline has been adjusted as the Committee has been offering several Listening/Input Sessions to share their progress and receive valuable input from students, staff, and faculty. With those sessions scheduled to conclude in late November 2016, the Committee will work to incorporate feedback and plan to complete their recommendations by early 2017.
