Sexual Misconduct

Reporting Sexual Misconduct

The following reporting options are available for incidents of sexual misconduct. These options are available at any time, although reporting is encouraged as soon as possible following an incident.

Reporting to the College

We encourage you to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the College so that immediate action can be taken to stop the conduct, prevent its recurrence and address its effects. The following individuals are trained to take reports of sexual misconduct. You may bring someone with you to support you while making a report.

  • Title IX Coordinator, Joan Slavin; 847-735-6009; slavin@mx.lakeforest.edu
  • Public Safety: 847-735-5555

Other ways to file a report with the College:
  • Electronic complaints may be filed by completing this form. This form may be completed anonymously; however, please be advised that the College may be limited in its ability to fully investigate anonymous reports.
  • Campus Conduct Hotline, 866-943-5787.  You may report by telephone to the campus conduct hotline.  Such reports may be anonymous. However, please be advised that the College may be limited in its ability to fully investigate anonymous reports.
Sharing Information with Faculty or Staff

Please note that all College employees, except for those employed in the College’s Health and Wellness Center, are obligated to report sexual misconduct of which they become aware to the College’s Title IX Coordinator. This includes student employees such as resident assistants.

Report to Law Enforcement

Many instances of sexual misconduct may also be crimes. Reporting to law enforcement may allow for a criminal investigation and/or prosecution by the local police and State’s Attorney’s Office. The criminal process is separate from the College reporting process. Information regarding the Illinois Criminal Code and how it pertains to sexual misconduct is located here.
