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. Substance misuse and abuse 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 and effectively navigate stress and social pressures in a healthy way. As Ducks it is on all of us to address these issues by being committed to taking care of ourselves and our community.

 

 


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.

In light of the surge of anti-Asian violence including the recent shootings that occurred in Atlanta, the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence (CMAE), University Counseling Services (UCS), and Sexual Violence Prevention & Education (SVPE) are offering a space to validate and name the racialized nature of these violent incidences. During a time we're remote, we wanted to provide a space for students to collectively express and process their fear, pain, and any other emotions that have arisen as a response to the escalated acts of xenophobic, Sinophobic and misogynistic violence towards our East and South-East Asian community members during the pandemic.

Mariko Lin and Bango Gancinia from University Counseling Services will be facilitating this group for all students that identify within the Asian, Desi, & Pacific Islander (ADPI) community. To center community building, this space is open to any students living in the Eugene/Springfield area, so we invite students from Lane Community College and Bushnell University to join us as well.

 

This event is a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in April and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) in May. For other SAAM events, please lookout for the Teal SAAM 2021 banner on UO events and visit saam.uoregon.edu. For APAHM events, please visit https://inclusion.uoregon.edu/apahm.

May 21 noon–5:00 p.m.

Share with us a piece of art that you want on display at the Sex Talk Chronicles Art Show 2021 on a virtual platform relating to the theme “Intimacy: Into Me You See”. For example, how is intimacy affected during a time of isolation and social distancing? What are ways that you cope with that? What do you wish you knew about intimacy when you were younger? What does intimacy mean to you?

We will send you an anonymous submission from Sex Talk Chronicles to pair with your art, and ask that you use that as your Artist Statement. You will then be invited to reflect about how reading someone else's words and using them to create a piece made you feel and how you connected with them and created intimacy anonymously.

You can submit art of any media including painting, photography, sculpture, music, spoken word, acting, dancing, and anything else that can be recorded or photographed for a virtual art show experience. All levels and multiple submissions are welcome! To learn more information and apply, visit: https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_38mT50DSHtC3ANM.

All submissions must be in by Friday, May 14th.

Due to the fluctuation nature of COVID-19, we are unsure of whether or not this event will be in person or virtual - more details to come soon.
