Confidential Reporting

Confidential Reporting helps us identify issues of incivility in their infancy and intervene before issues escalate to levels that hinder our scientists’ ability to carry out their mission of research, teaching, and service.

If you witness or are a victim of any behavior that is inconsistent with the university’s Code of Conduct, notify the Assistant Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the School of Chemical Sciences Tepora Su’a through a confidential online form. Before reporting, please review the confidentiality disclosure below.

Submit a Confidential Report

Your submission will ONLY be accessible to and reviewed by Su'a, who will take appropriate action. Next steps may include discussion with the department head, review by the DREI committee, or informing university authorities.

Optional next steps: 

  • If you need immediate professional assistance, call the Counseling Center at 217-333-3704. 

  • Set up an appointment to meet with Su’a to discuss this matter in person. 


Confidentiality Disclosure

Su’a is available to discuss options with students after a sexual harassment incident; however, she is mandated by the University to report the incident to the Title IX Office. We understand that some students and faculty might want the opportunity to brainstorm their options before reporting. In that case, please reach out to confidential advisors or confidential resources support below.
