UNIVERSITY CODES OF CONDUCT

The department cares about the well-being of all our students, researchers, staff, and faculty. The department affirms support for safe and professional working environments for all members of the community and hopes that all members of our community strive to live up to the UC Statement of Ethical Values and Standards of Ethical Conduct that represents a succinct statement of our Campus’ shared values. While all members of the Campus community are expected to abide by these guidelines, additional codes of conduct exist for faculty and students that further expand these guidelines and expectations

REPORT VIOLATIONS

The department values the initiative of its members who identify and speak up about potential problems that need to be addressed. To this end, the department encourages members of our community to report suspected violations of the codes of conduct and/or University policies. There are many existing ways one can seek advice on or report such matters, including: 

  • Contact the Berkeley Division of Student Affairs Ombuds Office for Students and Postdoctoral Appointees. This office is designed to be the first step, the last resort, or anything in between in obtaining assistance sorting through a campus-related conflict or concern. The Ombudsperson will listen to an individual’s concerns, serve as a sounding board, discuss options with that individual, and help that individual get a new perspective and determine the next steps to take. This includes referring students and postdocs to appropriate campus services and resources. The office is strictly confidential.
  • Via the Berkeley “People and Culture” organization which provides detailed information as well as ways of reporting in appropriate behavior in the workplace.
  • Via the Berkeley Diversity webpage’s “Report and Incident” page. This resource provides ways to report many events. The system will direct an individual to a University of California-wide reporting system where one can directly make a report.
  • Contact the Student Advocate’s Office. This Office houses caseworkers with a range of experiences and expertise covering everything from academic, financial, conduct, and so-called grievance concerns. The Grievance Division would be a place such concerns could be raised.
