University Policy on Nondiscrimination, Sexual Harassment, Student Records and Privacy
Nondiscrimination.The University of California, Davis, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy (including pregnancy, childbirth, and medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth), physical or mental disability, age, medical condition (cancer related or genetic characteristics), ancestry, marital status, citizenship, sexual orientation, or service in the uniformed services (includes membership, application for membership, performance of service, application for service, or obligation for service in the uniformed services), status as a Vietnam-era veteran or special disabled veteran, in accordance with all applicable state and federal laws, and with University policy. As required by Title IX, the University of California, Davis, does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs, admissions, employment, or other activities.

Sexual Harassment/Sexual Assault.The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community free of sexual violence and sexual harassment. Sexual violence and sexual harassment violate both law and University policy. Any member of the University community may report conduct that may constitute sexual violence, sexual harassment, retaliation, and other prohibited behavior ("Prohibited Conduct"). The University will respond promptly and equitably to such reports, and will take appropriate action to stop, prevent, and remedy the Prohibited Conduct, and when necessary, to discipline the Respondent.
In addition to sexual harassment, discrimination based on sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sex- or gender-stereotyping, and sexual orientation violates law and other University policies. Such discrimination may also contribute to the creation of a hostile work or academic environment based on sex and thus constitute or contribute to sexual harassment. Harassment that may not be sexual, but still contributes to a hostile work or academic environment, may also violate the University's other non-discrimination policies.
Campus policies and procedures for reporting and addressing sexual violence and sexual harassment may be found at http://sexualviolence.ucdavis.edu.
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities. Students with documented disabilities may be entitled to reasonable accommodations to gain access to the University's academic programs.

Disclosures from Student Records. Students have the right to review records that relate to themselves in their capacity as students and to request corrections of records believed to be inaccurate. Most disclosures from student records to outside parties require prior consent from the student.

Social Security Numbers. A student's Social Security number is used to verify personal identity in the UC Davis Student Records System. Students are mandated to disclose their social security number to UC Davis. In compliance with state law, Social security numbers are confidential and are not used as student identifiers.
Release of Registration Material and Grades. In compliance with student privacy rights under federal and state law and University policy, the Office of the University Registrar may not release a student's grades, registration material, and/or identification card to anyone other than the student without specific written authorization signed by the student. The person to whom the information, material, or card is released must be designated by name and must present proof of identity. The signed authorization is kept in the "Record of Disclosures" in the student's file.
