Report 2013-124: Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence: California Universities Must Better Protect Students by Doing More to Prevent, Respond to, and Resolve Incidents (Release Date: June 2014)
Recommendation #13 To: University of California, Los Angeles
To help ensure that resident advisors handle incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence appropriately, all universities should provide supplemental training on sexual harassment and sexual violence, including rape awareness training, for resident advisors twice a year.
6-Month Agency Response
All Resident Advisors (RAs) received training (new RA's 14 hrs and returning RA's 8 hrs), on rape awareness and how to appropriately respond to incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence, prior to the quarter starting.
Winter supplemental training is scheduled for January 14, 2015 (2 hrs) for all RAs and supervisors. This training will be developed and presented by by a nationally recognized trainer in sexual assault prevention and education, Dr. Allen Berkowitz. This is in collaboration with the UCLA Sexual Health Coalition and the Title IX Officer, the Dean of Students, CARE @ CAPS (Campus Assault Resources & Education at Counseling & Psychological Services), and leadership staff in Residence Life.
- Estimated Completion Date: January 2015
- Response Date: December 2014
California State Auditor's Assessment of 6-Month Status: Fully Implemented
UCLA marked this as not fully implemented because the second training, scheduled for January 2015, had not yet occurred at the time of its six-month response. However, it has subsequently demonstrated that it fully implemented this recommendation.
