Report an Interpersonal Violence Incident

The University of Portland encourages students who have experienced any form of power-based personal violence to contact a campus or community resource who can provide support and assist in exploring possible medical care and reporting options as soon as possible after the assault.

Reporting Options

Students may choose to report an incident of power-based personal violence in many ways, including to the Title IX coordinator, public safety, and/or Portland Police. Students may choose to report to a single source, multiple sources, or none at all.

File a Title IX Report

Facts About Reporting to the Title IX Coordinator

  • A student may report an incident of power-based personal violence to the University’s Title IX Coordinator immediately or at any time in the future.
  • A student may request to make a report without including one’s name or the name of the accused.
  • Reports made to the Title IX coordinator will be investigated to the extent possible and information shared with certain campus administrators, if necessary, to protect the safety of individuals involved and that of the campus community.
  • Reporting to the Title IX coordinator does not obligate the student to pursue a student conduct case through the University System. A reporting student may engage the student conduct process at any time. The University itself may initiate the Conduct process or take other actions if a threat to the student or community is determined.
  • Reporting to the Title IX coordinator does not prevent reporting to police, immediately or in the future. A reporting student may report to the police at any time.
  • Reports to the Title IX coordinator are protected in the same way that all student information is protected and details of the report, including the student’s name, may only be disclosed as permitted under privacy laws, college policy, and as necessary to comply with the law.

Facts about Reporting to Public Safety

  • A student may report an incident of power-based personal violence to Public Safety immediately or at any time in the future.

A reporting student may engage the student conduct process at any time. The University itself may initiate the conduct process or take other actions if a threat to the student or community is determined.
  • A student may request confidentiality or that the complaint not be pursued. In such cases, the University will take all reasonable steps to investigate, to the extent possible, protecting the safety of the complainant and that of the campus community.
  • Reporting to the University does not prevent reporting to police, immediately or in the future. A reporting student may report to the police at any time.
  • Reports will be referred to the University’s Title IX coordinator for appropriate follow up and administrative investigation.


Portland Police

24-hour non-emergency: 503.823.3333

Facts About Reporting to Portland Police

  • A student may report an incident of power-based personal violence to the police immediately, or at any time in the future
  • A student may report an incident to police directly, or by requesting assistance from public safety.
  • Police do not routinely notify the University of Portland of reports they receive. We encourage students wishing to engage University of Portland services to contact the Title IX coordinator, public safety, or other campus resources.
  • Reporting to the police does not routinely obligate the student to pursue criminal charges or appear in court if the student decides not to pursue the case at a later date. In rare cases where there is a significant community risk, a court may issue a subpoena to compel a student to testify, but this is a rare exception.
  • Reporting to the police does not prevent the student from reporting to the University of Portland or from pursuing a student conduct case through the University system, immediately or in the future.
