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.
