Reporting Options

In an emergency, dial 911 to contact local law enforcement

You may want to contact the campus advocate to discuss your options before you report, and it is your right to have an advocate present while you talk to law enforcement or campus officials. 

Suppose you are a survivor of sexual violence. In that case, dating/domestic violence, stalking, or human trafficking, you have the choice to report these crimes to law enforcement and/or the Student Judicial Affairs (SJA) Office. They may investigate and pursue action against perpetrators if the survivor so desires.

Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities

Honesty, fairness, and respect are essential to learning, teaching, and research, and to maintaining a productive and safe campus environment. As members of our academic community and of society at large, UC Merced students are held to the high standards of conduct set by the University of California and the campus, as well as to general requirements of law. UC Merced students are expected to uphold these standards in all their academic and extracurricular activities. UC Merced's conduct procedures are intended to promote reasoned, fair, and impartial consideration of suspected student misconduct, with respect for the rights and interests of all concerned: the accused student, the reporting party and the University.
