The Office of the Title IX Coordinator Receives, Responds to, and Assists in Resolving Complaints of Gender Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Violence
When the Title IX Coordinator becomes aware of an incident of gender discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence, the Title IX Coordinator works with other across campus to respond with support and services for affected individuals, attempts to understand what happened and works to resolve incidents in a prompt and equitable manner, and as much as possible in a manner consistent with what individuals involved wish. The Title IX Coordinator communicates with various campus community members such as Crisis Intervention and Sexual Violence Support Services, Student Conduct and Community Standards, the Office of the Dean of Students, the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity, UO Housing, Human Resources, and UO Police to ensure a coordinated campus response. More information at Resources and Assistance
The primary concern of the Title IX Coordinator when a complaint is received is campus safety and resource referral. The Title IX Coordinator is not the fact-finder or investigator during the formal complaint resolution process. Rather, the role of investigating the allegations is reserved for trained AAEO staff.
