Prohibited Discrimination and Harassment

The University of Oregon affirms and actively promotes the right of all individuals to equal opportunity in education and employment at this institution without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, marital status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or any other extraneous consideration not directly and substantively related to effective performance. As a federal contractor, the University of Oregon is committed to affirmative action in employment as a means of ensuring equality of opportunity.

Students and employees who feel they have encountered any form of discrimination or harassment may inquire at the Office of Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity for information on their rights, options, and resources.

The Office of Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity has information on grievance procedures and referrals including timelines associated with applicable collective bargaining agreements.

Confidentiality for all parties is respected to the extent possible. Employees should be aware that AAEO is tasked with ensuring compliance with this policy and state and federal law. Therefore, while AAEO will work with employees, students and campus community members to ensure that they understand their complaint options, are protected from retaliation and are provided with interim measures as appropriate, AAEO employees are not advocates for individuals participating in the process.

Prohibited discrimination includes sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, gender-based harassment and bullying and stalking as described in the Prohibited Discrimination Definitions.

Reporting Obligations of Employees

Consistent with its commitment to provide a safe environment for students, faculty and staff, University policy requires that employees (except confidential or otherwise exempt employees)who have credible evidence that prohibited discrimination is occurring have a duty to report that information to their supervisor or to the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity, or (in cases of discrimination or harassment on the basis of sex or gender) to the Title IX Coordinator or the Office of Crisis Intervention and Sexual Violence Support Services. 

For more information regarding employees designated as confidential or otherwise exempted from reporting, and university employee required reporting obligations, including those related to the reporting of sexual harassment, sexual violence and child abuse, please see http://prevention.uoregon.edu/resources.

For information relating to Campus Security Authority reporting obligations under the Campus Clery Act, please see http://police.uoregon.edu/content/campus-security-authorities.

In an effort to ensure that employees understand their duty to report, the University requires that all full- and part-time employees, including Graduate Teaching Fellows, complete an online training on Workplace Harassment Prevention. Questions about the training can be directed to the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity at 541-346-2971 or to mandatorytraining@uoregon.edu (link sends e-mail).
