Re: Revised APM 035, Appendix A; UC Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence

 

Academic Personnel Policy 035, Appendix A: Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination in Employment, University of California Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence, has been revised effective February 25, 2014.

 

President Napolitano has issued the revised University of California Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence as a Presidential Policy which applies to all University faculty, students, and staff.  While the body of 035 remains unamended, its former Appendices A-1 and A-2 of APM 035, have been replaced with a new Appendix A, which simply directs academic appointees to the governing Presidential Policy.  Appendix A provides:

 

 

“Academic personnel are covered by the University of California Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence which is Presidential Policy covering all faculty and other academic appointees, students, and staff.  Former APM 035, Appendices A-1 and A-2 are replaced with Appendix A.  The Presidential Policy is available at: http://policy.ucop.edu/doc/4000385.  Future revisions to this Policy will be circulated under standard procedures for Presidential Policies; the review will also include circulation under the standard APM review process, with final authority resting with the President.”

 

 

As noted, the Presidential Policy on the University of California Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence is available at: http://policy.ucop.edu/doc/4000385.

 

The body of APM 035 covering Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination in Employment remains unchanged and is available at:http://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel/_files/apm/apm-035.pdf.

 

 

The new Presidential Policy is designed, among other matters, to comply with the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA 2013) addressing domestic and sexual violence.  More information on VAWA 2013 is available at: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-113s47enr/pdf/BILLS-113s47enr.pdf.
