A survivor can report to police, university, both or neither- any or no decision by the survivor is to be respected and supported.

Reporting Sexual Assault through the University

Contact Confidential Advocate Mari Knuth Bouracee at mknuth@berkeley.edu or 510.642.1988 to discuss options; all other university employees are mandatory reporters.  The Office for Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD/Title IX office) is where reports are filed and investigations conducted. Center for Student Conduct then determines sanctions.

Reporting Sexual Assault through the Police

Contact Mari Knuth Bouracee at mknuth@berkeley.edu or 510.642.1988, or BAWAR (Bay Area Women Against Rape)  at 510.845.7273. The UCPD investigates on campus crimes,  and BPD investigates off campus crimes (Greek houses and most co-ops are off-campus).
