Report to School
How does it work?
To report an incident of sexual assault or unwanted sexual contact, you can speak with the Title IX Coordinator or any Required Reporter at the University, who will then notify the Title IX Coordinator.
You can download a record form to your personal device to document what happened and bring that documentation to help you make a report in-person.
By reporting the incident to Oregon, you can be connected to a number of support options available on campus, including help with academic problems, class schedules, financial aid, housing arrangements, transportation, and assistance in receiving health and counseling services. You are NOT required to provide additional information about the incident or participate in a university investigation in order to receive services. Oregon’s primary goal is to help, and they will always respect your decision to share, or not share, any aspect of your situation.
If you report information to a university employee designated confidential, that employee does not have an obligation to report the information to the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity. To provide accommodation(s) requested by the survivor, confidential employees may need to share limited information with those involved with implementing the accommodation(s).
When a required reporter receives information about an incident, the employee is required to share that information with Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity and the university has a responsibility to investigate based on the information provided and take action to prevent its reoccurrence.
If the person who harmed you is not affiliated with the University of Oregon, the university’s response to the report of an incident will be focused primarily on providing services and accommodations to the survivor and addressing any potential safety issues on campus.

During this meeting, you can let the staff member know how much or little involvement you would like moving forward. Specifically, you can request the following things:
- Your name not be shared with the respondent (perpetrator)

Who is involved?
Reports of sexual assault or unwanted sexual contact are directed to the Title IX Coordinator.
Only a few specially trained individuals will ever know that you reported to the university and their primary goal will be to help provide support and services to you. Students 18 years or older are protected by FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), which means that we cannot disclose information about your report to your family or friends without your written consent.
You will not have to interact with the perpetrator. You will be interviewed separately as part of the investigation. However, if you choose to pursue informal resolution, you may have to interact with the perpetrator.Back to top
