Faculty and Staff
The University aims to build a community that values each student and helps promote safety and respect for all. Faculty and staff must strive to create and maintain a safe, welcoming and respectful campus community.
If a student reports an incident of sexual misconduct by another student, as a faculty or staff member, you must report the matter to the Dean of Students. If the reported offender is not a student, please report to the Title IX Coordinator. The OUPD may also be contacted and is the University’s first responder to any safety concerns. Contact information for each is provided below.
