What are Resources For Respondents?

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.

Upon request, the university can provide interim measures to support Respondents including: making transportation and work arrangements, making financial aid arrangements, providing visa and immigration assistance, or connecting with off-campus resources. 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 (Confidential)

Confidential 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:

  • Providing a safe, supportive and confidential listening space
    This means that conversations cannot be shared with anyone else without the respondent’s expressed permission unless there is imminent risk of harm to self or others or as required by state and local laws.
     
  • Navigation, guidance and coordination through the conduct process
    Examples include reviewing documents and materials from investigation, final report, and sanctioning agreements as requested to assist in understanding process, supporting appropriate academic or other reasonable arrangements, navigation of logistical challenges such as interim suspensions, restrictions of privileges, and/or access to dining facilities, and help to cope with and understand the course of the conduct process, itself, possible outcomes and appeals process.
     
  • Referrals to campus and community resources
    See additional resource list below. Individualized resources may be identified as needed.

For this reason, our Respondent Resource Coordinator will reach out to students at the request of the Director of Student conduct or the Title IX Coordinator.
