Community Support

Community Support

If you are (or someone you are with is) in immediate danger or feel unsafe, call 9‑1‑1.

All students have the option of contacting outside community agencies for support. These agencies do not have the same obligations as the university to report or investigate incidents.

Outside agencies do not have authority to independently arrange on-campus remediation such as on-campus housing changes, academic accommodations, assistance with financial aid, student employment, or other academic and campus accommodations. For assistance with these type of accommodations please contact the SAFE hotline at 541‑346‑7233 (SAFE) and ask to speak with our staff.
