Resources

The Community and Inclusion Committee has compiled a list of resources for our department members. We have broken them down into two pages: General and Identity-Specific Resources. General resources include information on advocacy, Title IX, campus police, etc. Identity-specific resources include those focusing on a part of your identity, such as race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, etc.

By no means are the lists below exhaustive! If there is a resource you feel is missing from either of these lists, please send us an email at pa-comm-incl@groups.ou.edu or pa-comm-incl@ou.edu, and we will be sure to add it to the appropriate list.



General Resources

Empowered by the Office of the President to function independently of all administrative and academic offices. Their priority is to ensure OU community members across all three of our campuses have an impartial, confidential space to express concerns, seek guidance, and constructively resolve conflicts. They will help individuals manage and resolve conflicts within the university community early, informally, and at the lowest level possible, often without the need to pursue formal proceedings. The role supplements, but does not replace, the university’s existing avenues for formal conflict resolution.

More Information

Free, 24/7, confidential crisis line and support service for anyone in the OU community who experiences relationship violence or abuse, sexual assault, harassment, or stalking on campus. Any OU student, staff, or faculty member may utilize OU Advocates’ services. These services are also available to people beyond the victim, such as friends or bystanders. OU Advocates offers crisis intervention and emotional support, safety planning, information about academic, legal, medical, emotional, and student conduct resources to survivors, and education and support to secondary survivors, such as intimate partners, friends, and family.

More Information

OU offers a number of supportive measures for individuals impacted by sexual misconduct. Examples include assistance in filing a complaint with the university and appropriate law enforcement agencies, mutual no contact orders, change of class schedules, alternate housing arrangements, and counseling services.

More Information

Issues or concerns related to equity, discrimination, harassment, bias, or other inappropriate conduct by any member of the OU community can reported anonymously via a 24-hour hotline 844-428-6531 or http://www.ou.ethicspoint.com/. The website states: "Dear OU Community, At OU, our commitment to becoming a place of belonging for all strikes at the heart of everything we stand for as a community. Upholding this core value includes our promise to foster an environment of integrity, respect, and the highest ethical standards. Each member of the OU community shares the responsibility of ensuring these values are firmly upheld and concerns are promptly addressed. To that end, the University has partnered with EthicsPoint, an independent third party, to provide a simple and anonymous way for employees and students to report concerns or possible misconduct."
