Discrimination & Harassment Office

First established in 2001, the Discrimination and Harassment Office (DISCHO) serves the campus community with advice and support in regard to all matters related to discrimination and harassment on campus.

DISCHO remains the first port of call for staff or students at UCT who are experiencing any type of discrimination or harassment. The office receives, assists with, advises on and investigates claims regarding all forms of discrimination and harassment, including rape, and provides assistance to both complainants and alleged perpetrators.

DISCHO's role has grown in scope over the years to incorporate policy work, policy implementation and education and awareness, as well as the training and deployment of Anti-Discrimination Advisors (ADAs) and Sexual Harassment Advisors (SHAs).
