Reporting
Safety on our campus and in our communities is everyone's responsibility. By recognizing and reporting behavior you believe to be a potential concern, you can help our community members get the assistance and services they might need. By practicing bystander intervention - that is advocating for potential victims, constantly reminding yourself to keep an eye out for our community, and encouraging others to act similarly, steps can be taken to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
Incidents observed or persons of concern can be reported online via this reporting web link
or by contacting LBCC Campus Public Safety office - 541-917-4440 or officer on duty - 541-926-6855 (7x24 cell phone).

  • All staff and new students are required to take the "Personal Empowerment Through Self Awareness" training available at https://docs.google.com/a/linnbenton.edu/forms/d/1QJHQAq1JuCQuEubDpOvapFxtKV_0w42J5FS4wEOdrQE/edit?usp=sharing 
  • This online course addresses Personal Violence. This includes sexual assault, rape, partner violence,
    stalking, or sexual harassment. All of these crimes can happen on any campus. It is a tough topic to address, but it is an important one.
  • Sexual violence of any type will not be tolerated on our campus, and those who engage in this predatory behavior will be held accountable.  We are strategically working toward a violence free campus, and this online course is one critical component
