• "This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.

    "I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."

    -Dr. Rita Cavin
    UCC Interim President

  • Want to help?

    The Greater Douglas United Way is accepting donations via text and online: http://www.gduway.org/UCCgive

    The Umpqua Community College Foundation is accepting donations online and by mail: https://www.umpqua.edu/scholarships-donations

    We strongly recommend that donors cast a careful eye when considering other funds, as some are not based at charitable organizations and might apply high administrative fees. Also, unfortunately, at times like these, there are unscrupulous people who will set up false accounts.

Title IX

Title IX – Prohibits Sexual Harassment and Discrimination on Basis of Gender

UCC is committed to diversity and equal employment/education opportunity. We comply with Title IX. This is a federal civil rights law. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally-financed education programs.

UCC protects and supports the 1972 Educational Amendments of Title IX. We work to:

  • Promote equity in academic and athletic programs.
  • Prevent hostile environments on the basis of sex.
  • Prohibit sexual harassment and sexual violence.
  • Protect from retaliation and remedy the effects of other gender-based forms of discrimination.
  • Investigate and notify the college community of serious or ongoing threats. We work to prevent a recurrence.

How do I file a harassment or discrimination complaint? Who can I contact for more information on Title IX issues? When should I file a complaint of discrimination/harassment?

You should file a complaint of discrimination if you are a UCC student, staff, or faculty member and believe:

  • You are being subjected to harassment/discrimination
  • You have witnessed harassment/discrimination
  • You have knowledge of harassment/discrimination

How do I file a complaint of discrimination?

Report the situation to an Authorized Staff Person (ASP). An ASP is either:

  • The administrative-level supervisor
  • The administrator to whom the alleged harasser reports
