Every University of Oregon student has the right to pursue their academic, social, and work activities without fear or intimidation. While any form of unwanted sexual behavior and violence can be difficult to discuss, sexual violence is an issue that exists on college campuses and in communities throughout the country. The Sexual Violence Prevention and Education team is dedicated to providing education and prevention opportunities for you to help contribute to a safe and healthy campus.
The University of Oregon does not tolerate sexual violence or harassment. As Ducks, we respect each other and take care of each other. We get explicit consent before engaging in sexual activity and when we see someone in an uncomfortable or unsafe situation, we intervene or call for help.
If you or someone you know has experienced sexual harassment, including sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, gender-based harassment or bullying, and stalking, please visit safe.uoregon.edu or call 541-346-SAFE to speak with a confidential counselor who can explain your options and connect you with resources. This service is free for UO students and is confidential, consistent with state and federal law.*
