Southern Oregon University is committed to a timely, thorough and thoughtful response to concerns of equity violations. We are also committed to providing an educational environment that is safe and accessible to all. In addition, Southern Oregon University values due process, clarity of procedure and strives to ensure equal access for all members of the campus community.

The Equity Grievance Department serves students, staff and faculty. Concerns about sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, intimate partner violence, bias and discrimination are all addressed by The Office of Equity Grievance.

 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, 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.

Confidential and Process Advisors

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

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