A new webpage has been created to provide information on the NSF requirements regarding findings of sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, or sexual assault. Information on UCSB's policies and resources related to harassment must be disseminated to attendees at NSF-sponsored conferences prior to attendance and must also be made available at the conference. The webpage contains a sample letter to be used to communicate UCSB's harassment policies to conference registrants and attendees. A list of related university policies and resources is also provided.

A working group of staff from Academic Senate, Academic Personnel, Administrative Services, Title IX & Sexual Harassment Policy Compliance Office, Equal Opportunity & Discrimination Prevention Office, and the Office of Research have been developing UCSB's implementation of this new NSF policy.

Additionally, a condition code with a link to the webpage is being programmed to be included on the award synopsis of NSF and NSF flow-through awards. If you have questions regarding the NSF policy, please contact your Sponsored Projects team. Posted 4/11/2019
