Statement ON SEX DISCRIMINATION, SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences cares greatly about the health and well-being of our students. Federal law, specifically Title IX, and university policy on Discrimination, Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct (http://oae.uic.edu/TitleIX/CampusSexualMisconductPolicy.htm) require that all faculty and staff serve as mandated reporters of incidents involving sexual violence/harassment. 

Disclosures made to faculty, TAs, or staff about sexual or gender-based harassment, sexual assault, rape, dating violence, domestic violence and/or stalking on or off campus have to be brought to the attention of the Title IX Coordinator, Rebecca Gordon, EdD

She can be contacted directly at TitleIX@uic.edu or (312) 996-8670. The Title IX Coordinator contacts the student about his / her rights, the option to request an investigation, assists with interim safety measures, academic accommodations and other remedies.  In certain circumstances, the Title IX Coordinator can take anonymous or confidential reports as long as there are no safety risks to the student or community. Participation in any process is always voluntary.

If you want a confidential place to disclose, please contact the Campus Advocacy Network at (312) 413-8206 or can-appointment@uic.edu for options, technical assistance and advocacy or the Counseling Center (312) 996-3490 for support. For more information about reporting options and resources, see the online handout http://oae.uic.edu/docs/CampusSaVEResourceHandoutADACompliant.pdf and Sexual Misconduct website at http://sexualmisconduct.uic.edu/.
