Reporting Options

If you have experienced sexual misconduct or violence, accessing services and reporting the misconduct can help in ensuring your safety and well-being.

There are multiple ways to make a report on and off campus, and students can make reports to different offices and entities at the same time. Confidential Advocates are available to explain all your reporting options to you as well as accompany you in making an official report to the University including with Campus Safety, Title IX office, or Student Conduct. 

Campus Public Safety can be reached 24 hours a day and will work with Portland Police Bureau and the Office of the Dean of Students as appropriate to follow up on the report. CPSO has a Police Detective who has received advanced training in the investigation of sexual assaults and interpersonal violence. CPSO will report incidents to PSU's university officials.

This report is applicable if your situation involves another PSU student. Go to the Student Code of Conduct webpage for more information on filing a complaint, or call the Office of The Dean of Student Life at (503)725-4422. The Conduct process can provide immediate No Contact Orders, ensure classroom safety, and address other campus safety concerns. This flow chart will provide an overview of the Title IX investigative process for complaints against students for sexual misconduct.

This report is applicable if your incident involves faculty or staff. Go to the Equity and Compliance website, or call 503-725-5919.

PSU’s Title IX Coordinator oversees PSU’s compliance with Federal Title IX requirements, as well as the PSU Policy on Prohibited Discrimination & Harassment (including Sexual Harassment). The Title IX Coordinator will work with the Office of the Dean of Student Life and CPSO as described above. PSU’s Title IX Coordinator is Julie Caron and the Deputy Title IX Coordinator is Yesenia Gutierrez, Director of EO/AA. They can be reached through email at or by calling 503-725-5919.

Anonymous Report. This option is applicable if you do not want any follow up regarding your specific case. Completing the anonymous report form does NOT constitute a police report or a student conduct report. Anonymous reports are used to gather and record information regarding the incidence of sexual assault on and around our campus, and to inform the community about the campus climate. Students do not have to disclose your name or identifying information in this reporting option.
