UC responds to Moreno report on acts of bias and discrimination
University of California President Janet Napolitano issued a letter to UC chancellors on Jan. 24, 2014. It asks that they ensure that five measures are present on each campus to assure that incidents of discrimination, bias or harassment affecting faculty, students or staff are addressed in a robust, fair and transparent manner.
President Napolitano emphasized her and the chancellors’ shared commitment to creating campuses that are diverse, inclusive, and respectful and free from acts of discrimination, bias and harassment, and she expressed her confidence that these measures would significantly advance that commitment.
The five measures reflect the recommendations of a working group jointly led by the Academic Senate and the UC Provost, which Napolitano appointed in October and charged with assessing on a systemwide basis the issues raised in an independent report by former California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno on accounts of discrimination and bias involving faculty at one UC campus.
