The federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requires colleges and universities, both public and private, participating in federal student aid programs to disclose campus safety information, and imposes certain basic requirements for handling incidents of sexual violence and emergency situations.
Disclosures about crime statistics and summaries of security policies are made once a year and information about specific crimes and emergencies is made publicly available on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
Annually, no later than October 1st, OHSU disseminates the Annual Security Report so required information is available for current students, prospective students and employees. The report includes three years worth of crim statistics and summaries of certain security policies and procedures
Sexual assault resources
Sexual Assault is a Crime
The offenses of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking are crimes under the federal Clery Act and Oregon State Statues, violations of the OHSU Student Conduct Code and prohibited behavior as forms of discrimination on the basis of sex under federal Title IX laws. Definitions are provided to aid in the understanding of terminology used to describe these types of incidents.
OHSU prohibits sexual assault, dating violence and stalking. University officials respond swiftly to all reports of these incidents to provide support services for those who have experienced sexual or relationship violence or stalking, protect the rights of students and employees under our Title IX and Clery obligations, apply our Code of Conduct, and cooperate fully with law enforcement.
Reporting Assault or Violence
When a sex offense is committed, it is imperative that the victim-survivor file a report as soon as possible with the OHSU Department of Public Safety or the Portland Police Bureau. Preserving any physical evidence is necessary for successful investigation, arrest, and prosecution of the perpetrator(s). If the victim-survivor requires support, services are coordinated with the Office of Academic and Student Affairs and other community resources.
On and Off Campus Resources
OHSU's goal is to keep you safe on campus and ensure that you have access to crime prevention tools and information about sexual assault support, resources, services and assistance.
