The Discrimination Prevention Office (“DPO”) is continuing its operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.  In order to reach us regarding complaints or other operational matters, please send an email to, or call (310) 794-1232.  We will follow up via phone and/or email.  Also, we are conducting interviews by Zoom and/or phone.

Our complaint form, investigation procedures and frequently asked questions are all on this website.

The Discrimination Prevention Office (DPO) opened in Fall 2014 in response to the Moreno Report.

DPO investigates reports of discrimination or harassment based on race, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, and other categories protected by law and University policy. Typically, we investigate complaints brought by any member of the community (for example, students, staff or faculty) against faculty members. In certain cases, DPO also investigates complaints brought against entities or individuals who are not faculty. For example, under UCLA Policy 240, DPO may investigate reports of discrimination or harassment involving conduct that negatively impacts the campus climate related to equity, diversity and inclusion.

Besides investigating complaints, DPO is charged with developing and clarifying University policies and procedures on discrimination and harassment.

DPO also provides education, training, and guidance to UCLA faculty and members of the campus leadership about discrimination and harassment.
