The University of Oregon affirms and actively promotes the right of all individuals to equal opportunity in education and employment at this institution without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, marital status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other consideration not directly and substantively related to effective performance.
Federal Change in Transgender Protections will not Affect the UO
UO policy guarantees this right, which makes it clear that all of its campus community members have the right to fully and equally access its facilities and to be free from prohibited discrimination. UO policy defines prohibited discrimination to include discrimination based on sex, gender identity, gender expression, and perceived gender.
UO remains committed to providing safe and inclusive facilities to all of its campus community members including gender inclusive restrooms, changing rooms, and housing options.
Pronouns at UO
Like names, pronouns are an important part of how we identify that deserves to be respected. And we recognize that assuming someone’s gender can be hurtful, especially to members of our community who are transgender, genderqueer, or non-binary.
As a community, we are all learning together about the importance of pronouns and being better allies to the trans community on campus. We hope that you’ll join us in striving for inclusion, justice, and respect.
