Workplace Concerns and Questions

At the University of Portland, we recognize that concerns in the workplace arise from time-to-time.   We are committed to ensuring that workplace concerns brought to our attention are addressed in timely and fair manner. 

Often, an employee is able to resolve a workplace concern by discussing it with the person or supervisor directly involved in or relevant to the concern. However, in some situations, employees may feel more comfortable first obtaining guidance from Human Resources. Employees can contact Bill Jenkins, Assistant Director of Human Resources, or Sandy Chung, Director of Human Resources, in such situations.

Faculty members with concerns should follow procedures indicated in the Faculty Handbook.

Our Ethics Point reporting tool is available for situations where an employee believes a workplace concern needs to elevated to a confidential third party.
