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.

80%

of UO students use a designated driver when drinking

82.2%

of UO students stay with friends while drinking

It takes

1 hour

to clear a serving of alcohol from the body

nearly

70%

of incoming students don't or rarely drink

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.

February 1–26

All Sizes Fit is a positive body image campaign that aims to increase body positivity and decrease the social pressures associated with obtaining an "ideal body." All Sizes Fit focuses on three principles:

Attention: Be in touch with your body and its signals. Your body is excellent at regulating and letting you know what it needs in order to perform optimally.
Appreciation: Appreciate everything your body allows you to do and the pleasure it provides. It is because of your body that you can engage in the activities you love and enjoy what life has to offer.
Acceptance: Accept all the assets you have rather than longing for what you do not. Much of your body composition is predetermined by your genetics.

Please submit this form if you would like to enter the 2021 All Sizes Fit Virtual Art Show. Your submission should be a representation of body positivity, body acceptance, body image, and/or All Sizes Fit. If you plan to enter more than one piece, please fill out this form for each piece.

https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9sK3KbpAMOuELsy

All entries due by Friday, February 26, 2021. After we receive your piece digitally we will send another form for you to complete where you can share more about your piece (e.g. title, artist statement, etc.)

1st Place Prize: $100 Duck Store Gift Certificate

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Amphitheater

Take Back the Night (TBTN) is a yearly international protest aimed at raising awareness about the realities of sexual and domestic violence on campus and in the community, both for survivors of sexual and domestic violence and those who want to support and bear witness in solidarity. Take Back the Night is a survivor-centered event.

We expect that in 2021 this event will be virtual. We will reprise our successful VIRTUAL MARCH and speaker series, available online to the UO Community.  Stay tuned for more details, via Instagram, uo_womenscenter, and via the WC blog,  https://blogs.uoregon.edu/women/ .


In person, TBTN traditionally begins with a rally in the EMU Amphitheater, continues as a march through the streets of Eugene and ends with a Speak Out off-campus – during which survivors of sexual and domestic violence can share personal stories of how sexual and domestic violence has impacted their lives.
