See Something, Say Something, Do Something

Ducks Do Something

On our campus, we look out for each other and are committed to proactively addressing high-risk behaviors. The misuse and abuse of drugs such as alcohol is an issue on every college campus, but we take pride in creating a campus culture that is changing this norm. We are dedicated to creating a campus culture that is actively engaged in addressing issues of drug abuse and sexual violence in all their forms. Our efforts are focused on providing you with resources to help you have an exceptional experience at the UO without using drugs as a way to deal with stress or social pressures. As a member of our community, it is on all of us to address these issues and be informed.



Substance Abuse Prevention

Alcohol and other drugs are perceived to be a part of culture. Drinking may be incorporated in many different celebrations and social events. However, misusing alcohol or other drugs can have serious consequences for your health and your college experience. It is a complicated subject, so it is important to stay informed and be responsible if you choose to consume or use.

Sexual Violence Prevention

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.

University Prevention Efforts

We cannot simply hope the issue of sexual violence will go away—we need to be actively engaged in preventing it.  We are committed to doing all we can to educate ourselves and our community about sexual harassment in all its forms, to understand the culture surrounding sexual assault, to become engaged bystanders, and to promote healthy and safe behaviors.

The university does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any of its programs or activities. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the University of Oregon’s Title IX Coordinator, who is located in the Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance, or to the Department of Education, Western Region Office for Civil Rights.
