Most Oregon State University employees, excluding undergraduate student employees except those who have been notified they have a responsibility to report sexual misconduct, are considered "Responsible Employees" and must consult with the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access when they are made aware or have reason to believe that a violation of the Sexual Misconduct and Discrimination policy has occurred. Responsible Employee guidance is detailed in the Oregon State University Policy on Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Harassment or Sexual Violence (.pdf). However, the university makes several confidential offices available to those who have been affected by sexual misconduct or discrimination. The following offices do not report sexual assaults or other sexual misconduct or discrimination claims to other university offices, but can refer students and employees to resources and services both on campus and within the community: Survivor Advocacy and Resource Center (SARC), Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Student Health Services (SHS), and the University Ombuds.
Including a statement to your syllabus that informs students of your responsbility to report incidents of sexual misconduct can help students make informed descisions and assist you in fulfilling your responsibilities. The office has provided this example for your use:
Title IX Reporting
OSU is committed to providing a learning environment that is free of all forms of sexual discrimination and misconduct. Please be aware that I need to report incidents you disclose to me inside or outside the classroom that involve gender or sex-based harassment, violence, or discrimination, including your name, to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access (EOA). For more information on how EOA responds to reports, please visit their website at eoa.oregonstate.edu. However, if you wish to make a confidential disclosure and receive information on resources and services, please contact the Survivor Advocacy and Resource Center (SARC) by phone (541-737-2030), by e-mail (email@example.com), or visit them in the Plageman Building.

The State of Oregon also provides protected leave for survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault or Stalking. This law provides job protected, paid leave for employees to seek services for themselves or a minor child and/or to relocate. Services may include, but are not limited to: legal and law enforcement assistance, counseling, and medical treatment.
