The University of Portland (the "University") is committed to fostering a community that is safe and respectful for all community members. All students of the University are called to honor and respect the inherent value and dignity of others. Consistent with our values, sexual and gender-based harassment, misconduct, and violence are prohibited in our community. These types of prohibited conduct include: sexual harassment, including cyber harassment; sexual misconduct; sexual assault; dating, relationship, and domestic violence; stalking, including cyberstalking; negative conduct that attempts to prevent reporting of conduct prohibited by this policy or prevent participation in University processes related to this policy; and retaliation. The University will analyze and may have an obligation to respond to any report or complaint received by the University regardless of whether the incident occurred on the campus of the institution or elsewhere that relates to prohibited conduct.

The Title IX Office addresses all concerns about sexual and gender-based harassment, misconduct, and violence, including those that fall under Title IX or the student code of conduct.

The University reserves the right to take action when it determines that a student has not met the University’s standards in this area. Such conduct may result in discipline, up to and including dismissal from the University.
