The University of Alaska Board of Regents has clearly stated in UA regulations that discrimination, harassment and violence will not be tolerated on any campus of the University of Alaska. If you believe you are experiencing discrimination or any form of harassment including sexual harassment/misconduct/assault, you are encouraged to report that behavior. If you report to a teacher of a course, they must notify the UAF Title IX Coordinator about the basic facts of the incident. 

Your choices for reporting include:

  1.  You may access confidential counseling by contacting the UAF Health & Counseling Center at 907-474-7043;
  2. You may access support and file a Title IX report by contacting the UAF Title IX Coordinator at 907-474-6600;
  3. You may file a criminal complaint by contacting the University Police Department at 907-474-7721.  

The syllabus contains the following statement: “Any UAF employee or volunteer who reasonably suspects or observes minor abuse or maltreatment is required to report the incident. Reporting procedures are available on the UAF Protection of Minors. Violation of this policy by employees shall be reported as well.”

The University will not tolerate sexual or gender-based discrimination, including sexual misconduct such as sexual harassment or sexual assault, whether done by university employees, students, or third parties (i.e., non-members of the university community, such as vendors or visitors). Violation of this sex discrimination and sexual misconduct policy may lead to discipline of the offending party, including the possibility of separation from the University. Moreover, many forms of sexual and gender-based discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual assault, may also violate state and federal law. Criminal prosecution may take place independently of any university-imposed disciplinary proceeding.

The University is committed to providing an environment free from sexual or gender-based discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual assault, and to ensuring the accessibility of appropriate procedures for addressing all complaints of misconduct under this sex discrimination and sexual misconduct policy. The University will respond to complaints or reports of prohibited conduct with measures designed to stop the behavior, prevent its recurrence, and remediate any hostile environment it caused.

When allegations of sexual or gender-based discrimination or sexual misconduct are raised, this Regents' Policy and University Regulation 01 .04 applies and, to the extent it conflicts with other university policies and procedures relating to misconduct, it supersedes those policies and procedures.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) deals specifically with the education records of students, affording them certain rights with respect to those records. For purposes of definition, education records are those records which are 1) directly related to a student and 2) maintained by an institution or a party acting for the institution.

FERPA gives students who reach the age of 18, or who attend a postsecondary institution, the right to inspect and review their own education records. Furthermore, students have other rights including the right to request amendment of records and to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from these records.
