Sexual & Relationship Violence Resources
Oregon Tech Commitment: Oregon Tech is committed to creating and maintaining an environment free of all forms of exploitation, intimidation, harassment, and sexual harassment which includes sexual violence. Such behaviors are not tolerated by Oregon Tech, and are prohibited by law and Oregon Tech policies.
If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, has experienced sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or some other form of sexual violence or misconduct, we encourage you to report the situation to at least one of the options (see campus links below).
What if a Concern is Brought to Your Attention
If a complaint or concern is brought to your attention....
- Ask for help or assistance. It is fine to say to someone, “I don’t know, but I’ll get back to you.”
- Be intentional. Build relationships with others. Build trust with faculty, staff, and students. Do what you say you will do. Be direct.
- Communicate. Listen. Don’t feel like you have to talk. Deal with things when they are small. Don’t wait for them to escalate.
- Ensure that those who need to know (Title IX Coordinator, dean, supervisor, etc.) DO!
