We need the vigilance and support of the entire campus community to keep everyone safe. Please contact us immediately if you are the victim of or aware of;

  • Any hate crimes such as hate related grafitti, phone messages, email messages, harassment, text messages
  • Threats (either written, verbal, or digital such as email, phone, or myspace entries)
  • Property Crimes
  • Identity Theft
  • Individuals with Child Pornography on their computers
  • Individuals who are engaging in illicit drug activity
If You Have Been Victimized

If a person has been sexually assaulted, they should report the crime to the Office of Public Safety or the local police. The Office of Public Safety will assist you in contacting Victims Advocates and/or provide you with their information. The University provides support services for persons who have been victims of sexual assault. Staff will help refer individuals for appropriate medical, judicial, and counseling assistance. Reported complaints of sexual assault will be investigated and information obtained in the process will be kept as confidential as possible.

It is the survivor's choice on how to report sexual assault or misconduct:

  • WIRC Victim Advocates off campus at (309) 837-5555. Trained victim advocates help survivors with counseling, medical care, and legal advocacy.
  • For confidential on-campus assistance, survivors can seek care at the Beu Health Center. Confidential advisors are made available to survivors at the University Counseling Center at (309) 298-2453.
  • Individuals may also report a sexual assault and other sexual misconduct, without the direct involvement of police, to the University's Title IX Coordinator (Office of Equal Opportunity and Access) at (309) 298-1977.
  • Office of Public Safety (OPS) at any time at (309) 298-1949 or by calling 911 in an emergency.
