Startup UCLA Summer Institute

Housing

Protecting the health and safety of our campus community has been and will remain to be UCLA's priority. As such, UCLA Summer Sessions will be offered remotely in 2021 and housing will be unavailable this year to Summer Institute participants.


Important Information

Rules and Regulations

We are committed to offering all participants an educational experience of the highest quality, and also maintaining a safe and respectful learning environment. Participants will be entering into a community of students and educators and will be expected to conduct themselves in a manner which demonstrates respect for themselves, their fellow participants, UCLA’s faculty and staff members, program administrators, and members of the local community.

Participants must abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the Regents of the University of California on behalf of its Los Angeles campus, including, but not limited to, rules and regulations of the UCLA Office of Summer Sessions and the UCLA student code of conduct. Participants will be expected to meet the highest standards both academically and behaviorally and will be held fast to a commitment to academic and personal integrity, respect for all members of the community and teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures, or other University activities, regard for the basic rules of physical safety, compliance with directions of University or other public officials, and cooperation with adult supervision.

Summer Sessions has a “Zero Tolerance” policy with regard to lewd or indecent behavior and sexual, racial, or personal harassment or intolerance.

Participants will be expected to arrive to all program activities on time.

Participants are subject to discipline, up to and including dismissal, for conduct in violation of the Participant Agreement.

Student Conduct

The UCLA Student Code of Conduct has been developed to maintain a safe, supportive, and inclusive campus community that engages students in order to foster their academic success, personal growth and responsible citizenship. Therefore you are expected to conduct yourself in a manner which demonstrates respect for yourself, your fellow Summer Sessions students, UCLA's faculty members, and members of the local community.

Behavior governed by the UCLA Student Code of Conduct includes:

  • Academic honesty
  • Treatment of others
  • Health and safety
  • Use of resources
  • Use of alcohol and controlled substances

UCLA’s reputation for academic excellence and institutional integrity is among the most valued assets; as such, academic integrity is of paramount importance and UCLA does all within its power to maintain its standards.

Please note that while both UCLA and summer-only, non-UCLA students are subject to the same code of conduct policies, different conduct procedures may apply to non-UCLA students and that a Participant Agreement, if applicable, takes precedence.

Sexual Violence Prevention and Response

UCLA is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of sexual harassment and sexual violence. UCLA does not discriminate on the basis of sex or gender, and sexual harassment and sexual violence are prohibited under law and University policy.

Please review the information below regarding how to report incidents of sexual violence or sexual harassment and where to access confidential resources for those who have experienced such harassment or violence or have been accused of sexual violence or sexual harassment.

Reporting Options

  • All Summer Sessions participants can report incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence to the Title IX office. Please remember that under the UC Policy on Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment, employees are obligated to report sexual harassment and sexual violence to the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX coordinator, Mohammed Cato, is responsible for implementing and enforcing the University’s policies and procedures relating to sexual harassment and sexual violence. The Title IX office is located on the second floor of Murphy Hall. Reports can be made in person, via email at titleix@conet.ucla.edu, online at http://www.sexualharassment.ucla.edu, or by phone at (310) 206-3417.
  • Individuals also have the right to report to law enforcement, and can do so at any time regardless of whether they have filed a report with the University. Visit UCPD at 601 Westwood Plaza or contact them at (310) 825-1491.

Confidential Resources for Harmed Individuals

  • UCLA community members, including Summer Sessions participants, who have suffered sexual violence but may not feel ready to report can turn to the confidential Campus Assault Resources & Education (CARE) Program. CARE is a free, completely confidential resource dedicated to working with survivors of sexual harassment and sexual violence. CARE advocates can provide confidential support to individuals who have been harmed, make connections to medical care and other resources, explain reporting options and provide accompaniment through the reporting and conduct process. CARE Advocates may also be able to facilitate housing needs, academic adjustments and other accommodations. The CARE Program is located on the first floor of Wooden Center West, and online at www.careprogram.ucla.edu. CARE advocates can be reached at advocate@careprogram.ucla.edu or (310) 206-2465.

  • Anyone who suffers sexual violence can receive confidential services from the Rape Treatment Center (RTC) at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. The RTC provides comprehensive, free treatment for sexual assault victims, including 24-hour emergency medical care and forensic services, counseling and psychotherapy, advocacy and accompaniment services. Clients visiting the RTC can get a free ride from UCPD or get cab fare reimbursed. The RTC is at 1250 Sixteenth Street, Santa Monica, 90404 or (424) 259-6000.
