Nonconfidential Resources

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. Please be aware that telling nonconfidential resources what happened to you can lead to an investigation, even if you don't give identifying information.
