Title IX Complaint

Filing a Title IX complaint serves as official notice to Northern Illinois University and authorizes the Title IX Coordinator to contact the identified victim/claimant to provide them information about their rights and options and, as necessary, initiate a preliminary investigation into the information contained within the report.

If you wish, you may file an anonymous/confidential complaint, please contact a confidential resource at the university.

Filing a Title IX complaint does not constitute filing a police report. To file an official police report, please contact NIU Police and Public Safety (for incidents occurring on campus) at 815-753-1212 or DeKalb Police Department (for incidents occurring off campus) at 815-748-8400.
