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 #63 To: University of California, Los Angeles

All universities should provide regular updates on the status of their investigations to students filing or responding to complaints. Additionally, the universities should notify the students of the resolution of the complaints. To demonstrate that they took these actions, the universities should maintain appropriate records.

1-Year Agency Response

The Title IX Office has acquired a systemwide database that will track sexual harassment and sexual violence complaints. This database will assist in tracking and record-keeping for such complaints. The current practice is to notify all sexual harassment or sexual violence victim complainants of the resolution of their complaints. UCLA's newly hired Response Team Coordinator (a position created by the President's Task Force) will assist in tracking complaints and investigations and keeping appropriate records.
