Dear UC Community Member,
The U.S. Department of Education recently released proposed Title IX rules primarily addressing how schools must respond to sexual harassment, including sexual assault. The draft rules are open for public comment until January 28, 2019. The rules address a topic of great significance to the UC community, and it is critical that the Office of the President provide comments. To ensure those comments are informed by the views of the UC community, I invite you to share your input through this survey.  Due to the short comment period and impending holidays, my office must receive this input by December 21, 2018.  This will allow us to fully consider the community’s contributions before finalizing OP’s comments. 

The proposed Title IX rules, as published in the Federal Register, are available  here.   The section numbers in the survey align with the section numbers in the proposed rules.  Additional information provided by the Department of Education is available here.  Additional information on UC’s position on the proposed rules is available here.  Rather than complete this survey, you may also  email your comments directly to the Systemwide Title IX Office Program Coordinator, Evelyn Cheng (evelyn.cheng@ucop.edu). 

Note to Students:  These survey results will be reviewed by individuals considered "responsible employees" under the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment (available here).  Accordingly, if you reveal possible sexual harassment or sexual violence through this survey, they may be obligated to inform your local Title IX Office. 

Please know that a confidential CARE Advocate is available on each campus to provide confidential support and advice, and to serve students and employees who have experienced sexual violence or sexual harassment.  More information is available here.

Thank you for your help with this important undertaking.   
Kind Regards,
Suzanne Taylor
