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.

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Swindells

HIV Alliance will be on campus to host a Naloxone Training for University of Oregon students. The training will take place from 6:00-7:00pm in EMU Swindells and is free of charge. The purpose of the training is to educate students on HIV Alliances’ many resources, what an opioid overdose may look like, teach what Naloxone is and how to administer it, and provide Naloxone kits as a resource. The training also emphasizes the importance of calling for help when interacting with a potential substance overdose. If you’re unsure what Naloxone is or need a refresher:


Naloxone is an opioid antagonist that has the ability to reverse an opioid overdose. While emergency personnel typically administer it, it is safe enough to be administered by laypeople.
Naloxone has no impact if opioids are not present in the body. Naloxone comes in 2 forms: Evzio (an injection similar to an epipen) and Narcan (a nasal spray).

October 5 2021–June 7 2022

Prevention and intervention rely on collaboration, but often those who work in this field of work find themselves in silos. One gap recognized was lack of connection among alcohol and other drug prevention, intervention, and recovery staff across the state of Oregon's institutions of higher education.

With support from Oregon Health Authority and leadership from the University of Oregon, the Oregon Prevention Coalition was formed.

Since its first meeting in the summer of 2020, the coalition has created a space for staff to build relationships, receive training, and garner statewide collaboration. The coalition meets on the first Tuesday of each month and averages one training each quarter.

Initially focused on public, four-year institutions, as of winter 2021 the coalition is expanding to community colleges. Eventually, the coalition will encompass the state’s private colleges and universities.

Millions of families gather together every year to celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. Many Americans do not grow up thinking much of the history behind the holiday. The main messages are that of gratitude, food, and family; however, Thanksgiving is, foundationally speaking, a celebration of the ongoing genocide against native peoples and cultures across the globe. In collaboration with NASU (Native American Student Union), we will focus on ways in which we can continue to show gratitude while raising our critical consciousness and identifying ways to decolonize the holiday. This workshop is free and open to UO students, faculty, and staff.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, this year’s event will be entitled “Take Back the Night 2021: A Remote Movement Against Sexual and Domestic Violence.” Monday-Thursday we will host Take Back the Night Virtual Rally Speakers with pre-recorded videos on Microsoft Stream (a platform which requires a UO ID to log in and view - a precaution for the personal safety and cultural sensitivity of our Speakers).

Virtual Rally Speakers will be representing the Latinx, Black, Refugee, Native American/Indigenous, Disabled, Asian, and LGBTQIA+ Communities and more.

Links to individual Rally Speaker videos will be posted on the Women’s Center’s website https://blogs.uoregon.edu/women, our Instagram (@uo_womenscenter) and our Facebook (UO Women’s Center) at 6pm each night.

Following the final Virtual Rally Speaker on Thursday, April 29th (the original night of Take Back the Night) will be a TBTN Virtual March on YouTube.

*JOIN* Take Back the Night 2021 by submitting your Virtual March Posters to be featured in the Take Back the Night Virtual March slideshow on YouTube. Submit photos and sign UO Model Release Forms online via https://tinyurl.com/TBTNPoster2021. Deadline for submissions is April 26th  at 11:59 p.m.

For more information please contact Women’s Center Sexual Violence Prevention and Educator Coordinator, Kati Rodriguez, at SVPEWC@gmail.com or Women’s Center Director, Fatima Roohi Pervaiz, at fpervaiz@uoregon.edu
