UC Santa Barbara encourages all members of the campus community to promptly report incidents of sexual violence, sexual harassment, sex discrimination, and other behavior prohibited by Title IX Office-related policies (“TIXO prohibited conduct”) to the Title IX Office. Reporting to the Title IX Office ensures that impacted parties receive information about support resources and their options for pursuing a response process through the University. Reporting to the Title IX Office also provides the University with valuable information about the prevalence of these issues in the campus community, which helps to inform and further improve prevention and response efforts.
