Sexual Violence & Sexual Harassment Prevention Education
Both the University and the campus community have made it a priority to ensure that harm and violence have no place at Cal. This can include, but is not limited to, hate or bias related incidents, sexual violence, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.
Through numerous trainings, we are equipping our campus with the skills to recognize instances of potential harm or violence and offer help safely, be that by de-escalating, intervening, or reporting any potentially violent or concerning situations.

For Undergraduate Students
For Graduate Students
Online Training: The online trainings are available at any time. A personalized link is available at CalCentral.
In-person training: If you were unable to attend any of the in person sessions listed above, please contact email the appropriate Dean’s Office for additional information.
Students failing to complete programs will have a hold placed on their registration. The hold restricts student access to student services (e.g.UHS, RSF, libraries, parking/transit, etc) and can delay financial aid disbursement if the hold is not resolved. The hold will also impact enrolling in classes. The hold will stay in place until the requirement is completed. More information can be found at http://registrar.berkeley.edu/.
Yes, and it's important to understand all the requirements that pertain to you, and how they differ.
All employees of the University are required to take the UC Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Prevention Training that is designed specifically for employees. This online module is in addition to the prevention education for incoming students. An email with a personalized link to the training will be sent to you directly from the UCB Learning Center.
In addition, every first-time Graduate Student Instructor must also successfully complete the online course Professional Standards and Ethics for GSIs (which includes a module on sexual harassment and sexual violence) before they interact with students (either in person or online) in their role as an instructor. The GSI online ethics course module differs from the other trainings in that it focuses on sexual harassment issues as they may arise in the course of a GSI’s duties. To enroll in this course, please go to http://gsi.berkeley.edu/programs-services/ethics-course/
Accommodations for students with disabilities needing to complete this requirement may be requested through the Disabled Students Program. Information regarding DSP can be found at http://dsp.berkeley.edu/.
If you have any additional questions regarding completion of this requirement, please submit them to the appropriate Dean’s Office.
