Victim's Bill of Rights

Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex. Sexual harassment of students, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by this federal law. When incidents of sexual harassment or sexual violence, including domestic violence, stalking, and dating violence, occur and are reported to campus security authorities, Pacific takes immediate and effective steps to end sexual harassment and sexual violence.  Retaliation against individuals reporting sexual harassment and/or sexual violence will not be tolerated and will be addressed through the appropriate university process (Public Safety, Student Conduct, Human Resources).  Questions about University of the Pacific's Title IX/Sexual Misconduct Policy should be directed to Andrea Goldblum, Title IX Coordinator, - 209.946.7770 or 1.888.383.2765 (toll-free). 

The Campus Sexual Assault Victims' Bill of Rights requires that all colleges and universities (both public and private) participating in federal student aid programs afford sexual assault victims certain basic rights. Complaints about failure to comply with this law should be made to the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.

Survivors shall be notified of their options to notify law enforcement.
