Section 1: Experiences with Harassment, Discrimination, and Reporting

A recent report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine found levels of harassment in academia are second only to the military. This survey is part of UAW 2865’s ongoing efforts to lead the fight against harassment, discrimination, and other forms of inequity at the University of California. By collecting and interpreting our experiences, we can gauge the scope and nature of the issues we face as well as the effectiveness of the University’s response, and we can use the responses to shape the bargaining goals, collective organizing, and political advocacy of our union.

The survey takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. Your responses are confidential, but UAW 2865 will track who has taken the survey to ensure the integrity of the responses.
