Resources Available to Deal With Sexual Misconduct

UIC’s SEXUAL Misconduct Policy states that sexual misconduct is a violation of UIC’s values and policies and is a barrier to fulfilling the University’s educational, research, and service missions. Sexual misconduct is expressly prohibited and will not be tolerated at UIC.

UIC OFFERS assistance and intervention to survivors of sexual misconduct to support their continued progress at the University. UIC can provide a coordinated response that may include interim safety measures, academic accommodations, housing relocation, student conduct process, victim advocacy, respondent assistance, and counseling – regardless of whether criminal or Title IX investigations are pursued.

THE TITLE IX Coordinator in the Office for Access and Equity is responsible for investigating all reports of sexual misconduct. The Title IX Coordinator, UIC Police, Campus Advocacy Network, the Office of the Dean of Students, Campus Housing, and the Counseling Center are the primary units that coordinate support services, victim assistance, and referrals for victims of sexual misconduct. The campus provides confidential places for members of the UIC community to receive support and advocacy.

THE UNIVERSITY imposes strict sanctions against those found responsible for sexual misconduct and assists survivors in the pursuit of administrative, civil, and legal remedies. Personal retaliation in connection with any possible sexual misconduct is prohibited.
