If you or someone you know (student, faculty, or staff) has experienced gender discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence, the university can offer assistance, support, and resources:
You can submit an anonymous report online (non-confidential) via Maxient. Anonymous reports are intended to make the university aware of harassment, discrimination, and/or misconduct without identifying information on who submitted the report. The university is committed to honoring the wishes of reports who choose to remain anonymous while pursuing steps to address the harassment, discrimination, and/or misconduct. However, in certain cases where anonymous reports contain information about significant threats to the health and safety of an individual or the campus community, the University may take steps to attempt to identify the source of the report. This may include reports of use of weapons, threats of violence or property damage, intentionally false reports or the intention to harm self or others.
If you wish to report anonymously, DO NOT enter your name, contact information, or other identifying information in the Maxient form.
The university may be limited in the ways in which it might address issues from anonymous reports and will not be able to have someone reach out to provide support, resources, and information. If you wish to receive support or resources, but also remain anonymous, contact confidential staff directly at 541-346-SAFE or by going to drop in hours at Dean of Students Office or the University Counseling Center.
The procedures that are used to resolve complaints of harassment and discrimination vary depending on the status of the complainant, the status of the respondent, and the complaint procedure initiated. In general, complaint procedures involve two steps: (1) an investigation and (2) a sanction or discipline procedure.
- Complaints against students follow the student conduct code, including any applicable investigation and sanctioning procedures.
- Complaints or investigations against employees follow the applicable collective bargaining agreements and/or UO policy. If discipline is recommended as a result of that investigation, the employee-respondent will have certain rights, as prescribed by the applicable collective bargaining unit or university policy.
Regardless of the complainant or respondent’s status or the type of complaint or grievance filed, parties have certain rights during the complaint process.
