Report an Incident
How to Report an Incident of Sexual Misconduct
Survivors have the right to report or not report sexual misconduct. Survivors have the right to request and receive assistance from campus authorities in notifying law enforcement and/or the University.
Confidential Reporting Options
Confidential means that the information disclosed by the student, verbally or in writing, will be maintained in a confidential manner to the extent allowable by law and will not be disclosed to anyone outside the office to which it is reported without the student's consent. Consent may not be required, however, in situations involving suspected child or adult abuse or neglect, court orders or subpoena or danger to self or others.

The UICPD’s primary areas of responsibility are the UIC – Chicago Campus East and the UIC – Chicago Campus West, although UIC police officers may exercise their authority in counties wherein other UIC campuses are located when such is required for the protection of University properties and interests, and its students and personnel.

The University recognizes that sometimes students are reluctant to seek help after experiencing sexual misconduct, or may be reluctant to help others who may have experienced sexual misconduct, because they fear being held responsible by the University or law enforcement for underage alcohol consumption or drug use. To encourage reporting, the university will not pursue disciplinary actions for alcohol/drug violations against a student making a good faith report of sexual misconduct.
