New Student Advisory Board will provide input on sexual violence prevention and response

A new 19-member Student Advisory Board has been established to provide input to the university on its ongoing efforts to prevent and respond to sexual violence and sexual harassment.

The board will hold its first meeting Feb. 5. The board members will serve as liaisons between students and the UC Systemwide Title IX Office on the university’s continuing prevention and response efforts. They will provide information to students about UC’s latest efforts, share students’ feedback with Systemwide Title IX Coordinator Kathleen Salvaty, and help identify emerging issues.

The board consists of one undergraduate and one graduate student from each campus, except for UCSF which does not offer undergraduate programs and will be represented by one graduate student.

“We were impressed by the more than 100 applications we received, which underscores how passionate our students are about this issue,” Salvaty said. “We’re eager to expand the ways in which we receive feedback from students and we’re looking forward to working with the new Student Advisory Board.”
