Title IX Resources

Non-Confidential

Depending on their roles at NIU, staff and faculty have varying reporting responsibilities and abilities to maintain confidentiality. Disclosures of sexual misconduct to responsible employees and/or non-confidential resources may lead to the university launching an investigation into the incident, even in the absence of any identifying information

Confidential Resources provide a safe space for individuals to discuss their options, learn about resources, and discuss any concerns before deciding to take next steps. Conversations with a confidential resource are privileged communications and are not disclosed to others. The matter will remain confidential to the extent permissible at law.
