Gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence are prohibited at the University of Oregon by federal law and university policy.

Consolidation Announcement:

Ensuring the University of Oregon has an inclusive and welcoming campus for students, staff, faculty and the community is a top institutional priority. We must continuously look for ways to strengthen and enhance efforts to address and reduce incidents of discrimination and harassment. To further these efforts, the UO is consolidating its Title IX and Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity offices under a newly formed Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance. We believe this new structure will continue to improve our investigation and response functions, and ultimately better serve our university community.


Efforts are underway to update the Title IX website so it reflects this important organizational change. Please know that the content and contact information provided on this website remains current and accurate as we transition to the Office of Civil Rights Compliance.


For people involved as a complainant or respondent in an outstanding case with either the AAEO or Title IX office, those cases will continue without interruption.

This website provides members of the University of Oregon community with information and resources to address and resolve incidents of gender discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual violence. The Office of the Title IX Coordinator oversees all programs or processes that may involve gender or sex equity issues by responding to complaints, assisting students, faculty, and staff, and educating the university community.

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a US federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in all educational institutions that receive federal funding, such as the University of Oregon.

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
—Title IX, Education Amendments of 1972

Title IX Applies to Everyone at the UO

Under Title IX, all members of the University of Oregon community—students, faculty, staff, applicants for admission, and applicants for employment—are protected from gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence.

“The University of Oregon will not tolerate sexual violence or harassment in any form. Every member of our community deserves to feel safe and secure in their academic pursuits. We owe it to our students, their families and our entire community to work together to combat sexual assault and to hold each other accountable. We will teach our students to respect each other. We will teach them to stand up for each other. We will show them that we have zero tolerance for sexual violence by swiftly investigating reports and taking action without sacrificing due process. We will not rest until we succeed.”
—University of Oregon President Michael Schill
