Campus Climate

UC Merced's Principles of Community are grounded in our mission of instruction, research and public service. We value diversity, affirm the inherent dignity of every person and uphold communities of justice. We strive for a campus and a world free of discrimination, intolerance and hate. We are equally committed to freedom of expression, critical inquiry, civil dialogue and mutual respect.

If you experience or observe behavior that is inconsistent with our Principles of Community, please report it. You may report in a variety of ways:

  • Report anonymously or by name, via the UC Campus Climate page
  • Report anonymously to an appropriate campus office
  • File a report with UC Merced Department of Public Safety

Even if you don't want or expect any action to be taken, having a record of all campus incidents helps the University to better address issues of culture, climate and inclusion. Your report can make a difference.

The university takes these issues seriously and expects that they're reported in good faith. At no time will action be taken against anyone for good-faith reporting, inquiring about or seeking guidance regarding campus issues of intolerance. Your report is confidential and, to ensure that, the university contracted with an independent provider, EthicsPoint, for this service.
