By The Faculty and Staff of the LALS Department 

The faculty and staff of Latin American & Latino Studies unequivocally condemn sexual harassment and sexual violence.

We are committed to reporting and responding to any incidents of sexual misconduct that are brought to our attention. We foster a feminist culture of trust, respect, and transparency. We reject any behaviors and practices that threaten the dignity and safety of our students and all members of our community.  We stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual violence and are resolute in our support of everyone’s right to learn and thrive in an environment free from violence, intimidation, and discrimination. 

Members of our campus community can visit safe.ucsc.edu to learn more about sexual violence response and prevention, systemwide policy, education and training, and off-campus resources.
