Spring/Summer 2021 Procedures

We're conducting investigations electronically and issuing supportive measures to ensure access to both face-to-face and virtual education programs and activities. We're available in person Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Please follow the protect the pack guidelines. Our staff is working remotely on Fridays when the university is open.

The Ethics and Compliance Office (ECO) advances NIU's mission by promoting accountability, equal access and ethical behavior in the university's educational and workplace environment. We work to accomplish this by:

Reporting Misconduct

Policies on discrimination/harassment and sexual misconduct apply to in-person and virtual behavior (cyberstalking, for example).

If you've been affected by sexual misconduct, discrimination, harassment or retaliation, contact us at and/or file a report or complaint.

If you're a responsible employee, you must report sexual misconduct when you become aware of a suspected or actual incident, whether you learn of it in person, in writing or online.
