UIC Student Sexual Misconduct Policy

Campus and Community Resources

As a faculty member or staff member your relationships with students puts you in a unique position to offer help and support. The primary role for faculty and staff is to help the student know that there are campus and community resources that can help. As faculty and staff, it is important to understand that your role is not to provide counseling or take on the problem for the survivor. By educating yourself and following some simple guidelines, you can confidently and effectively respond to students who are experiencing sexual misconduct (sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking).

Please refer to the Sexual Misconduct Definitions for more information.

On receiving notice of an incident of sexual misconduct, assess whether a student needs immediate medical attention or there is an imminent danger to the student or others. If a student needs immediate medical attention or there is an imminent danger to the student or others call 911 or 312-355-5555 (UIC Police).

You should also encourage the student to report the incident to the UIC Police. Refer to the Reporting Sexual Assault section of this website for more information.

As a faculty or staff member you can serve an important role in helping survivors. By recognizing, responding and referring students, you are letting them know that you care about them and want to help.

Community Resources

Students have the option of seeking support and assistance through community organizations. Outside agencies do not have the same obligations as the university to report or investigate incidents of sexual misconduct. These agencies also do not have authority to independently work with university departments to arrange academic accommodations, on-campus housing changes, access to university facilities, programs, or services and other on-campus interventions.
