Support and Resources

The University recognizes that deciding whether or not to make a report and choosing how to proceed can be difficult decisions. We encourage any individual who has questions or concerns to seek the support of campus and community resources. These resources can provide guidance in making decisions, information about available resources, and procedural options, and assistance to both parties in the event that a report is pursued.

Students and employees may always contact the Title IX Coordinator with questions regarding support and resources, or how to make a report. The Title IX Coordinator is a non-confidential resource and can be contacted at TitleIX-info@willamette.edu.

Employees

Employees may find information about support and resources on the Human Resources website, as well as the Not Alone website regarding community resources.

If you are seeking information regarding how to support someone whom you know or suspect may have been harmed, you can find information here on possible options.
