If you feel you have been the victim of sexual discrimination, harassment, or violence please use the procedures outlined on RCC's Title IX site.

General information and procedure(s) used to resolve disputes.

  • Prohibited behaviors for students are outlined in Section 9.1 of RCC's Student Rights, Freedoms, and Responsibilities procedure.
  • Please contact a Counselor to discuss the situation.
  • If you feel another student is violating the acceptable standards of behavior an incident report should be filed - a Counselor can help you with this process.
  • The Compliance Coordinator will review incident report and conduct investigation..
  • Feel free to contact Chauncey Kieley (541.245.7632) when you first have concerns about another student. Even if discipline is not necessary they can often be put in touch with other services.
  • Students may also use the formal Grievance Procedures if they feel they have been subject to discrimination based on race, color, religion, ethnicity, use of native language, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, veteran status, disability, age, pregnancy, or any other status protected under applicable federal, state, or local laws.
