How do I find out who is a Designated Reporter?

Both employees and students can follow these simple instructions to identify deisgnated reporters:

  1. Compare your/the employee’s job title in Find People to the list of job titles for designated reporters below.
  2. Look for stickers on doors. (If you are a Designated Reporter you will receive a sticker to post prominently in your work area).

  3. Ask the employee if they are a designated reporter prior to disclosing anything.
  4. Call the Title IX office/Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance for confirmation (541-346-3123), call Human Resources (541-346-3159), or talk to your supervisor (for employees).

Every UO employee belongs to one of three required reporting categories:

Here’s how you can identify the category of different individuals on campus:

The university created this policy as an integral part of an effective response to prohibited conduct. It does this by demonstrating a commitment to maintaining an environment free of harassment and discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender, perceived gender, or gender identity that would violate Title IX.

Key components of the policy include:

  • Definitions of key terms.
  • Establishing three categories for types of employees and their reporting obligations:
    designated reporters, student-directed, confidential reporters.
  • Describe obligations for faculty, staff, and university administration.

This policy is intended to encourage reporting by students who have experienced prohibited conduct because it clearly identifies responsible employees for reporting purposes, respects the wishes of students when they talk to other employees, and makes all employees at the institution part of the solution to prohibited conduct.
