Together, let's create a SAFE CAMPUS at Oregon Tech!
Submitting a report is the best way to help us all be safe. These are directed to specific employees who can respond, reach out, or provide resources based on the issue, need, complaint, or concern.
Safe Campus Objectives:
- To support a safe, secure environment that promotes inclusiveness
- To cultivate open dialogue, appreciation of diversity, and understanding
- To combat prejudice and promote equality
- To provide education, facilitation and resources
- To serve as an advocate for those alienated and marginalized by society
Oregon Tech is committed to student success and cultivating positive working and social relations among diverse groups on campus. Through such programs as Safe Campus, we are dedicated to creating an inclusive environment that allows everyone to feel like they belong and are welcomed, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, ability or socio-economic status.
Safe Campus is a shared vision and a collaborative effort by Oregon Tech's administrators, faculty and students. The Oregon Tech community has a right to a safe campus, free of discrimination and violence. While our focus is on academic achievement, building and supporting an inclusive community that encourages personal growth and mutual awareness is a top priority.
