We cannot simply hope the issue of sexual violence will go away—we need to be actively engaged in preventing it. We are committed to doing all we can to educate ourselves and our community about sexual harassment in all its forms, to understand the culture surrounding sexual assault, to become engaged bystanders, and to promote healthy and safe behaviors.
The university does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any of its programs or activities. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the University of Oregon’s Title IX Coordinator, who is located in the Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance, or to the Department of Education, Western Region Office for Civil Rights.

We have doubled our efforts to clearly define behavioral expectations for our newest students. Beginning fall 2015, all residence hall students will attend Get Explicit 101, a program focused on bystander intervention, consent and healthy relationships.
