Information for Employees

Understanding your role as a responsible employee

At Eastern Oregon University (EOU), all employees who are not confidential employees are responsible employees. Responsible employees are required to report incidents of gender-based discrimination or harassment, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or retaliation to the Title IX Coordinator.

How to support a reporting person

Responding with compassion, validation, and support when an individual discloses that they may have been a victim of emotional, physical, sexual or gender-based harassment or misconduct, can be an important part of their healing process. Sometimes, the most valuable advice comes from someone that individual already trusts.

How to report an incident shared with a responsible employee

  • Report to the university: Submit a Title IX Anonymous Report Form
  • File a report in person with the Title IX Coordinator, a Deputy Coordinator or with Human Resources.

How to report an employee-related incident

Employees wishing to report an employee-to-employee or employee-to-student incident may do so by contacting the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator.
