The University of California Title IX office is establishing a Student Advisory Board (SAB) to serve as a mechanism to ensure that students have a direct relationship with the Systemwide Title IX Office, which is the office responsible for the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment.  This board will have the opportunity to provide critical feedback and advice to the Systemwide Title IX Office regarding issues related to Title IX, including efforts to prevent and respond to sexual violence and sexual harassment (“SVSH”). In addition to advising the Systemwide Title IX Office, Title IX SAB members will engage students on their respective campuses to provide information to students regarding systemwide SVSH prevention and response efforts, and collect input from students to provide to the Title IX Office.

The SAB will consist of 19 student members:  one undergraduate student and one graduate student from each UC campus (of which 9 campuses have undergraduate students and 10 have graduate and professional students). The term of service for Title IX SAB members is one academic year. However, initial Title IX SAB members will be expected to serve 1 ½ terms (from January 2018 to June 2019).  Title IX SAB members will be required to dedicate significant time to the Title IX SAB, including attendance at two in-person meetings per year, and participation in monthly phone meetings and/or subcommittee meetings. Title IX SAB members are expected to communicate broadly with their campus community about issues identified and discussed by the Title IX SAB.

All applicants will undergo an academic and conduct review. Applications are due by Thursday, November 30, 2017, 5:00pm (PST). Successful applicants will be notified the first week of January 2018. Additionally, board members will need to be available to attend an in person meeting in Oakland on January 25, 2018.

Please note that under the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment (http://policy.ucop.edu/doc/4000385/SVSH), these employees are obligated to inform the Title IX Officer should they become aware that you or any other student has experienced sexual violence or sexual harassment.  Confidential resources on your campus may be found at http://sexualviolence.universityofcalifornia.edu/get-help/index.html
