About Us

The Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance (OICRC), formerly the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity and the Office of the Title IX Coordinator, offers the UO community a place to discuss and report issues, concerns, and conflicts regarding discrimination and harassment, including sex or gender-based harassment, stalking, bullying, or violence in accordance with university policy and federal and state laws.

We support students, staff, faculty, and campus community members by:

  • Promoting a learning and working environment free of discrimination and harassment.
  • Receiving concerns, reports, and complaints from any member of the UO community (i.e. students, staff, faculty, visitors and program participants) regarding issues of potential discrimination and discriminatory harassment at the university.
  • Investigating reports and complaints of discrimination and harassment. As investigators, we do not act as advocates, but serve in a neutral and impartial capacity.
  • Addressing and resolving concerns and complaints of discrimination and harassment through referral and collaboration with various stakeholders and partners across campus.
  • Explaining and clarifying university policies and procedures, federal and state laws, and regulations regarding discrimination, harassment, retaliation and equal opportunity.
