Personal safety is everyone's responsibility. Below is a list of resources available to help maximize safety in a variety of environments.
The CSO Program employs only UCSD students and offers many safety-related services, including year-round campus safety escorts.
SARC is dedicated to creating a safe and respectful community that does not tolerate sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking.
SARC offers workshops on violence prevention for the entire UCSD campus and provides free and confidential services for students impacted by violence, with a focus on survivors of sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. See their pages on the following topics, or visit their website.
Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) is a national program designed to provide women with the concepts and methods needed for self-defense.
Though UCSD makes every effort to ensure student safety on campus, it's always important to be aware of general safety tips as they relate to self defense, your car, and campus locations like residence halls and elevators.
If you've been sexually assaulted, you have the right to report the assault to the UCSD Police Department.
The most effective way to prevent harassment or discrimination and promote respectful interactions is through education. The Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD) provides educational programs and information designed specifically for faculty, staff, and students.
