Committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment
"The university’s leadership team stands united in our resolve to do whatever we can to enable every member of our community to flourish and contribute. I also want to make absolutely clear that we condemn any threat or effort to intimidate anyone at the university. We are a community of scholars. Efforts to divide us based upon the color of our skin, our nationality, our immigration status, our abilities, our diversity of thought, our gender, or our sexual orientation must be called out and stopped."

—University of Oregon President Michael Schill

Providing Equal Access and a University Environment Free of Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment

The university is committed to equal access to programs, course offerings, facilities, admission and employment for all of its employees, students, and campus community members. It is the policy of the university to maintain an environment free of harassment and discrimination against any person.

Discriminatory harassment, including sexual harassment is disruptive of workplace and campus life, and may result in the denial of equal opportunity to a student, employee or campus community member. Discrimination prohibited by state and federal law, discriminatory harassment, including sexual harassment, and retaliation impede the realization of the university’s educational mission and will not be tolerated at the University of Oregon.

Under Title IX, all members of the University of Oregon community—students, faculty, staff, applicants for admission, and applicants for employment—are protected from gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence.
