Welcome to the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination at Sonoma State

OPHD is a prevention, response, and compliance office that focuses on sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, stalking, harassment and discrimination based on protected status, and retaliation. It is our commitment to the Seawolf community that we will work to provide an environment that is safe and equitable for all.

If you or others you know have experienced any of the acts mentioned above, please contact us by submitting an online report using the link on our page or by emailing ophd@sonoma.edu. The campus and our surrounding community have additional resources to assist those experiencing stress and trauma.
