About OPHD

Our Mission

The Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) strives to increase access to employment, programs, and services in an environment free of unlawful discrimination and harassment. OPHD is responsible for assessing and investigating reports of discrimination or harassment based on race, ancestry, national origin, disability, religion, age, and other categories protected by law and University policy brought against academic personnel. OPHD is also the Title IX Office at UC San Diego.

UC San Diego is committed to the highest standards of civility and respect toward all as reflected in the UC San Diego Principles of Community. The university rejects acts of harassment and discrimination, works to resolve concerns, and investigates known facts to determine if university policies have been violated.
