We’re here to listen in a non-judgmental, confidential manner. Talking about your concern can bring a feeling of comfort and increase your sense of control over the future.
Addressing concerns or conflicts with others can be difficult. We can help you develop and practice your communication skills to promote positive interactions with others in the future.
You may wish to request the presence of a third party when addressing a concern. If agreeable to those involved, we can either identify a third person or facilitate the conversation ourselves.
There are so many resources available at NIU. We can refer you to the best resource for your concern, including those for mental health, student success and more.
You may want to bring your concern forward, whether to a department chair, administrator or someone else. We can review the processes available to you and help you decide which path to take.
If you’re interested in filing a formal complaint, we can provide guidance about policies and procedures. We can also connect you with the appropriate office or person for filing, if desired.
The information and training opportunities we provide can help you understand our role on campus. You’ll also learn how we can help you build skills to optimize your time at NIU.
