Welcome to the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination (OPHD)

The goal of OPHD is to help to create an environment at UCSF in which each individual's contribution is valued and everyone can succeed.

UCSF is committed to Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action in compliance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations.

1 Protected categories include race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender, gender expression, gender identity, gender transition status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition (cancer-related or genetic characteristics), genetic information (including family medical history), ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or service in the uniformed services, including protected veterans.
