Supporting Victims of Abuse

Connecting the victims of abuse with proper support services is an important goal of OSU.  When an allegation of abuse has been made, refer the alleged victim and his/her family to the District Attorney’s Crime Victim Assistance Office ( in the county the allegations are reported to have occurred. The Crime Victim’s Assistance Office can provide court advocacy, judicial system information and orientation. In addition, the Crime Victim’s Office can provide a Crime Victim’s Compensation application which may provide for long-term counseling to address the impact of the crime on the youth.

Instances involving sexual abuse or misconduct must be reported to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access (web:, phone: 541-737-3556) in accordance with Title IX obligations. EOA will provide survivors of sexual abuse with referrals to support services including the Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence (CARDV), OSU Counseling and Psychological Services, Student Health Services and the Employee Assistance Program.
