Title IX: We Care

The University of Portland is committed to fostering a community in which all members feel respected and safe. Sexual and gender-based harassment, misconduct, and violence have no place at the University, are inconsistent with our mission and values as a Holy Cross university, and will not be tolerated.

The University believes that it is our community’s responsibility to prevent, educate, and effectively respond, and it is a responsibility the University takes very seriously. We recognize that a culture of respect and safety requires that each one of us — students, staff, faculty, and administrators — do our part when something occurs that is not consistent with our community’s values. Further, it is imperative that individuals affected by sexual and gender-based harassment, misconduct, and violence know they are not alone — that our community is here to help.

UP community members are encouraged to report incidents of sexual and gender-based harassment, misconduct, and violence to the Title IX Office. The University will take steps to appropriately address such reports and support affected community members.

Together, we can take a stand to be part of a community in which all members feel respected and safe. Join us in learning more about campus and community resources and reporting options, along with our education and prevention programs.

Our Goals for Title IX

The University of Portland is committed to strengthening our work in Title IX. Below are  current projects or goals the university is working towards. 

  • The University is exploring possibilities for a confidential advocate to be co-located on our campus. This advocate would be a confidential resource, separate from the Title IX Team, who is trained and knowledgeable in Title IX and associated issues.
  • Title IX Advisory Committee will be expanded during the 18-19 academic year to include greater representation, especially from student groups.
