The University of California College of the Law, San Francisco prohibits discrimination against any person on the basis of the following protected categories: age, ancestry, childbirth or related medical condition, citizenship, color, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, gender identity, gender transition status, genetic information (including family medical history), marital status, military or veteran status, medical condition (e.g., cancer-related or genetic characteristics), national origin, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, race, religious creed, sex, sexual orientation, sex- or gender-stereotyping, or any combination of these or related factors. This policy is intended to be consistent with applicable state and federal laws and the law school’s policies.
Every person at UC Law SF has the right to pursue an academic or professional career in an atmosphere that is safe and free from prohibited acts of discrimination, harassment, or violence, including sexual abuse, rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, intimate-partner violence, stalking, sexual coercion, or other forms of sexual violence. Bigotry, harassment, or intimidation is particularly insidious when directed at a member or group of the UC Law SF community on the basis of actual or perceived participation in a protected category; and, to the degree it constitutes prohibited bias activity, such conduct will also not be tolerated.
