Sexual Misconduct Policy

Sexual misconduct has no place and will not be tolerated at Lake Forest College.

The College cares deeply about the health, safety, and well-being of all members of the College community. If you or someone you know may have been the victim of any form of sexual misconduct, you are urged to seek immediate assistance. Assistance can be obtained from:

  • The College’s Sexual Misconduct Hearing Board, which includes faculty and staff members whose names and phone numbers are posted on my.lakeforest, and who are individually prepared to provide assistance;
  • Lake Forest College Public Safety: off-campus 847-735-5555 or on-campus x5555, which may be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week;
  • Confidential and independent Campus Conduct Hotline: 866-943-5787.
