About UCSC SVSH Prevention Efforts

As part of a UC wide effort to Prevent and Address Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment (SVSH) , all UC Santa Cruz students and employees are required to complete ongoing SVSH prevention training. SVSH Prevention trainings provide information on preventing and responding to sexual violence and sexual harassment and what each of us can to do to make our UC culture safer for all. Trainings are offered online and in-person depending on the status of the affiliate. 

Courses will cover content required by the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment including:


  • Definitions of different forms of sexual violence
  • Social norms, including the attitudes and beliefs that can normalize violence
  • Bystander intervention
  • Responding to sexual violence using methods that acknowledge the impact of violence and trauma on survivors’ lives
  • Local resources, including confidential support for survivors of sexual violence and appropriate services for those accused of sexual violence
  • Rights and options about reporting sexual violence.

The online SVSH Prevention trainings for staff and faculty are provided through the UC Learning Center and questions about the employee trainings should be directed to learningcenter@ucsc.edu

The online student trainings can be accessed by logging in directly to the Everfi website using your UCSC email and gold password for authentication. Note: If you are already logged in to UCSC, the link will take you directly into your assigned training. If not, please click on the red “UCSC Login” button to log in. Questions about the student trainings should be directed to lyounghi@ucsc.edu.

Title IX also provides in-person training (Zoom or Webinar format during Shelter in Place) to all incoming students that is required in addition to the online training. 

The trainings are mandatory but an alternative training option can be requested for those who have been impacted by sexual violence by emailing care@ucsc.edu. When emailing care@ucsc.edu, please include the specific training title, your student or staff id, and your email. Use this link to request a CARE presentation.
