Support and Resources for Incidents of Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment, Misconduct, and Violence

When sexual or gender-based harassment, misconduct, or violence occurs, the University’s primary concern is for the safety, health, and wellness of those who are affected. The University offers a variety of resources and support to assist affected students as outlined below. The University encourages affected students to speak to someone about what happened and to obtain information about types of support that are available.

The University of Portland is committed to making the Title IX process as accessible as possible for all students. Students who require a disability accommodation or who may have other factors that could impact their ability to participate in or seek resources from the Title IX program should contact the Title IX Office at titleix@up.edu or (503) 943-8982 to make a request.

The following types of support are available to students. These are general examples and is not an exhaustive list:

  • Information about the University’s investigation and conduct processes;
