This new website was created by the Coordinated Community Review Team of UC Berkeley in 2019 and is intended as a place to start for navigating key information about university support services and reporting options, your responsibilities as a part of the community, the steps the campus is taking to prevent and respond to sexual violence and sexual harassment (SVSH), and how you can get involved. This website replaces svshadvisor.berkeley.edu.

Filing an Administrative Report
