Sexual Harassment Prevention Advisors (SHPAs)

Section 1


The OEOD Sexual Harassment Prevention Advisors (SHPA) program exists to assist students, staff, and faculty on campus and in UCI Health with concerns about sexual harassment and sexual violence (relationship violence, stalking, and sexual assault). SHPAs possess knowledge of applicable laws, University policies and procedures, and confidential resources on campus. In addition to facilitating a warm hand-off to OEOD, they may assist OEOD in the implementation of Title IX-related academic, housing, and workplace accommodations. 

What are SHPAs?
