Victims of violence and sexual assault

In 2007, the University of California received a $1 million grant from the United States Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women.

The purpose of the systemwide grant was to help UC campuses build a coordinated community response and develop comprehensive educational programs that address sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking. The grant also provided training for UC police officers and student conduct staff to respond more effectively to these forms of violence.

By coming together as a university system, we are better able to support survivors of violence, hold perpetrators accountable, and create a culture where violence against women is not tolerated.
