Additional Resources

For individuals in need of immediate help, these resources – including the University of Chicago Police Department and the University of Chicago Medicine's Mitchell Emergency Room – are available 24/7. The Sexual Assault Dean on Call (SADoC) is also available to students 24/7.  

The University’s Policy on Harassment, Discrimination, and Sexual Misconduct contains an appendix that lists support services and resources. The list includes legal, disciplinary, and medical support services, as well as resources specifically for students, faculty, and staff.  It also includes on-campus and non-University resources.  Some of these resources are listed below.  Please bear in mind that the resources below are not confidential resources.  Meaning, they must report instances of sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment), dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking that they learn about to the Title IX Coordinator for the University or the Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Students.  If you are seeking confidential resources, please see the Confidential Resources tab.  


Harassment Complaint Advisors

If you're not sure where to begin, an individual who feels they have been harassed in an incident without a sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking dimension may bring the matter to a Complaint Advisor, whose role is to discuss with the complainant available options on how to proceed. The advising is intended to provide a forum for free and open discussion between the complainant and the Advisor. Consequently, no record will be kept of the advising conversation other than an incident report, which will not contain the names of either the complainant or the accused and which will be used only to keep a yearly record of the number of different types of reported incidents. Every attempt will be made to protect the privacy of an individual who seeks the assistance of an Advisor. If the Advisor learns of allegations that are so serious that they obligate the University to act there will be an administrative response, which may include a formal investigation and will include notifying germane administrative or managerial personnel (e.g., department chair and/or dean in matters involving faculty members, other academic appointees, and postdoctoral researchers; deans of students in matters involving students; and supervisors, managers, and/or directors in matters involving staff employees).

“Responsible Employees”

Some University employees (referred to as “Responsible Employees”), including those referenced above, are required to report all incidents of sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment), dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking to the Title IX Coordinator for the University.  Responsible employees include faculty and instructors, RAs, Resident Heads, Resident Masters, TAs, preceptors, administrative assistants, UCPD staff, and other university employees.  Please note that reporting an incident to the Title IX Coordinator for the University or Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Students is private, and it does not mean the person who experienced sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking somehow loses control of the process.  To the contrary, the Title IX Coordinators are here to advise members of our community on their options regarding remaining anonymous, confidentiality, the University’s process for investigating complaints of sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking, and the University’s disciplinary process.  Indeed, in some cases, individuals choose not to move forward with the investigation process, but still request support services.
