Responsible Employees’ Reporting
Responsible employees must immediately report allegations or disclosures of sexual misconduct involving students to the Title IX Office, including identification of persons reporting as victims and persons accused, along with other relevant information. All employees who are not certified Counselors in the UIS Counseling Center in Student Affairs are responsible employees. This includes student Resident Assistants, who are Responsible Employees. Other undergraduate student employees or student Graduate Assistants (G.A.s) or Teaching Assistants (T.A.s) are not Responsible Employees.
You may also email the report to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call in your report by speaking with or leaving a confidential message for the Title IX Coordinator at (217) 206-9999.
If you are NOT a Responsible Employee, you may make a confidential report by clicking below to enter your narrative summary, including names of all persons involved and other relevant information, or you may email your report to email@example.com, or call to speak with or leave a confidential message for the Title IX Coordinator at (217) 206-9999.
A confidential report is separate from seeking confidential counseling before making a report. Although the Title IX Coordinator will take reasonable steps to address reports of sexual misconduct while keeping confidential the identity of the reporter, confidential reporting may ultimately limit the University’s ability to take appropriate action in the absence of all relevant facts. The University must also consider its obligation to maintain a safe environment for the UIS community.
If you have concerns about confidentiality, please first seek advice from the UIS Counseling Service. If you are comfortable filing a confidential report, based on the information contained in this section:
If you are NOT a Responsible Employee, you may report an incident without disclosing anyone’s name or requesting any action. Please note that choosing to make an anonymous report can significantly limit the ability of the University to respond. This information will be used for statistical purposes as well as for enhancing understanding of our campus climate so that we may strengthen sexual misconduct response and prevention efforts.
