IU Northwest Reporting

IU Northwest

When you experience sexual misconduct, you are not to blame. It doesn’t matter when it happened, where it happened, or what the circumstances surrounding the incident were. It’s not your fault.

By coming forward and reporting your experience, you can make a big difference. You can help make our campus and community safer for everyone—and prevent the person who hurt you from harming anyone else.

There are several avenues you can take to report a sexual misconduct incident.

Making a report online

You can make a report through the Indiana University Incident Report form.  Please provide as much detail about the incident as possible, including how you may be reached for more information. The responses you provide in this report will be routed to the University Title IX Coordinator and/or Deputy Coordinator. Please note that this is not a substitute for seeking immediate help in an emergency. If you are in danger or require immediate assistance, please dial 911.

Report an incident online

Reporting an incident to Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs

If you experience sexual misconduct on campus, you can and should report it to the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs. While this won’t initiate criminal action, if the accused is a student, it will open the door to disciplinary action through the campus student conduct system. Other avenues may be available if the accused is not a student.

If you choose to pursue this option, no-contact and no-trespass orders can be issued so you don’t have to face the accused. You can also file a report but decline to pursue an investigation, if that’s what you wish.

To make an appointment, call 219-980-6586.
