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 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 AAEO 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.

The Office of Civil Rights Compliance will be led by Darci Heroy, current associate vice president and Title IX coordinator, and will report directly to the president with dotted lines to the vice president for student life and vice president for finance and administration:
