The staff in the Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance (OICRC) and the Office of the Title IX Coordinator are committed to supporting a university environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. We are also committed to a fair and unbiased investigative process, which means that while we take all allegations of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation seriously, we are committed to withholding judgment about whether or not a university policy may have been violated until an investigation has concluded.
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 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.
