Help for victims of sexual assault and sexual misconduct
Multnomah University is committed to providing a Christ-centered community that fosters a safe place to live, work and learn for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We respect and value all people as created in the image of God. Further, our sexual misconduct policy is intended to fully comply with all applicable legal requirements prohibiting harassment or sexual violence against any member of our community.
We are committed to providing support, as well as assisting you in all aspects of reporting and responding to the situation. Our Title IX Policies & Procedures, trainings, and prevention programming strives to implement practices that are culturally responsive, gender responsive, and operate through a trauma-informed lens of anti-oppression.
In Compliance with SB 1572, Multnomah University’s SGA’s (Student Government Association) Executive Board collaborated on definitions which guide the implementation of the policies and procedures of Title IX and can be found here.
Ultimately, you have a choice in how the process goes and the steps you choose to take. We strongly encourage you to use confidential on-campus and off-campus sources, including our Confidential Advocate, and/or file a report with the Title IX Coordinators or Student Life.
It is important to note that MU has a “conditional amnesty policy” for those who might be concerned about reporting an incident because of a possible policy violation.
