Through the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and its independent offices (Discrimination Prevention and Title IX), the University has authority to examine and investigate various forms of conduct that violate non-discrimination policy or undermine equal learning and working environments. This work is often done in the form of  Formal Investigations and Climate Assessments.

To promote transparency, we’d like to share some of that work when lawful and prudent to do so. Even when matters are resolved by settlement, we’d like to post a statement describing the terms of that resolution whenever we can. The amount of detail we can share in any given case is a function of legal constraints, privacy considerations, and complex negotiations. But EDI is committed to bargaining hard in favor of greater transparency. By sharing this information, our goal is to increase accountability, promote a sense of closure, deter future bad behavior, and educate the UCLA community about important policies, procedures, and community norms.
