The Interfraternity Council of the University of California, Berkeley places the utmost importance on the safety and wellbeing of all students, whether members of Greek life or not. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the resources below and to email Jesse Ough, IFC VP of Risk Management, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sexual Violence resources
The PATH to Care Center provides affirming, empowering, and confidential support for survivors and those who have experienced gendered violence, including: sexual harassment, dating and intimate partner violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sexual exploitation. Confidential advocates bring a non-judgmental, caring approach to exploring all options, rights, and resources.
It is always the victim’s/survivor’s decision to pursue any of the available resources or to report an incident to the police or the university. PATH is here to support your decisions.
