If You've Been Accused

If you have been accused of sexual violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence or stalking, there are campus services available to help you understand your rights and the investigation and adjudication processes.

Contact the UC Irvine Respondent Services Coordinator at 949-824-5208 or visit www.chs.uci.edu/camppus-social-worker/respondent-services/

All campuses will have designated individuals – known as respondent services coordinators – who can:

  • Help you understand your rights
  • Explain and help you navigate the investigation and adjudication processes, including formal hearings
  • Refer you to campus and community resources, such as for psychological counseling, legal services (including help understanding and complying with protection orders), alternative housing, academic changes and other needs
  • Assist with securing an interpreter or translator, if needed

It is important to note that respondent services coordinators are not legally required to maintain confidentiality. However, as a general practice, the coordinators will request signed consent from you before disclosing personally identifiable information. Respondent Services Coordinator keeps information private and will not be a witness in an administrative investigation or adjudication process.
