Reporting Options

There are three reporting options at Southern Oregon University: an Anonymous Report, a Confidential Report and a Formal Report. Southern Oregon University's Sexual Misconduct and Equal Opportunity Report Form offers both anonymous and confidential reporting. Anyone can also make a report to local law enforcement by calling 911 or visiting the reportingoptions.org. Anyone making a report about bias and discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, or intimate partner violence can seek information or make a report confidentially. For more information about options for reporting, please visit the Campus Choice or Reporting Options sites.

 

Campus Choice

Campus Choice is Southern Oregon University’s system of addressing sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence. Campus Choice serves students, staff and faculty.

Through Campus Choice you can receive coordination of care, help with whatever you need, options, information, care, and education related to your specific situation. You do not need to make a formal report to receive help through Campus Choice.

Process Advisors

SOU is able to provide confidential advising prior to a formal report being filed. Advisors are here to provide you with all of the information and support available to you. You can come and speak to an advisor confidentially to learn about University Process, Law Enforcement, Community Based Supports, and Civil Remedies without formally making a complaint to the University.

 If you have been named in an Equity Grievance complaint you will have a Process Advisor assigned to you and they will help you navigate the process as well as address concerns related to academic standing or employment concerns.
