The UC Board of Regents unanimously approved the new standards at a two-day meeting in San Francisco on Thursday.
The new rules require all regents to take the university's sexual harassment prevention training program and prohibit regents from violating the university's sexual harassment or ethical conduct codes.
They are required do so in their public and private lives.
UC spokesman Ricardo Vazquez says it is not clear if Regent Norman J. Pattiz could face disciplinary measures retroactively for a violation of the new policy.
