These resources can assist you if you experience sexual misconduct, though they can't promise confidentiality. Some NIU employees are considered responsible employees. If you tell them about the incident, they're required to report it to the Title IX coordinator.
While generally, the university will only initiate an investigation when one is requested by the person that experienced sexual misconduct, some circumstances may require NIU to conduct an investigation even when the victim/survivor does not request one. For example, if the accused used a weapon or is a repeat offender, NIU may decide an investigation is in the best interest of the larger community.
