University Support and Interim Measures:
The UO is committed to a fair, unbiased, and consistent learning environment where every student is treated with dignity and respect and is granted all procedural protections afforded by the Student Conduct Code.

The Respondent Support Services person who reaches out to you can assist in arranging these types of interim measures, as well as Deputy Coordinators, the Dean of Students office and the Title IX Coordinator’s designees.
Title IX Respondent Resource Services
Support is available through the Office of the Dean of Students to help respondents understand available resources and guide them as they go through the conduct process. The Respondent Resource Coordinator will reach out to students accused of Title-IX related conduct code violations in order to offer and provide these individualized support services:
- A safe and supportive listening space
- Navigation, guidance and coordination through the conduct process
Examples of support include (1) review of documents and materials, including documents related to the investigation, the final report, and sanctioning agreements, to assist in understanding the process; (2) assistance with appropriate academic or other reasonable support measures; (3) navigation of logistical challenges such as interim suspensions and restrictions of privileges and/or access to dining facilities; and (4) help to cope with and understand the conduct process, potential outcomes, and the appeals process.
