Resources designated “confidential” are available to provide support, resources, and information. These individuals do not share identifying information about people or incidents without the person’s consent.

The University’s Policy on Harassment, Discrimination, and Sexual Misconduct contains an appendix that lists support services and resources. The list includes legal, disciplinary, and medical support services, as well as resources specifically for students, faculty, and staff. It also includes on-campus and non-University resources.

Emergency Resources

For individuals in need of immediate help, these resources are available 24/7.

Medical Resources

University of Chicago Medicine’s Mitchell Emergency Room:
773-702-6250
901 East 58th St. (24-hours)

The Mitchell Emergency Room follows specific policies and procedures, approved by the State, in treating an individual who has been sexually assaulted. The State will pay for emergency room care for victims who have been sexually assaulted and do not have health insurance; if a victim provides health insurance information to the emergency room, the emergency room will bill the insurance company and the policy holder will be notified as usual.

  • The victim is placed in a private room.
  • Medical care is given as soon as possible.
  • A Sexual Assault Survivor Advocate or a Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call (for a student) may be called based on a victim’s preferences.
  • By law, city police are notified, and the victim may choose to file a report.

 

Law Enforcement

University of Chicago Police Department
773-702-8181 or 1-2-3 from a campus phone (24-hours)

The University of Chicago Police Department (UCPD) urges anyone who has been sexually assaulted to call immediately in order to strengthen the likelihood of successful prosecution. A UCPD officer can be summoned by calling 773.702.8181, pressing the red button on any of the emergency phones located throughout the community, or coming directly to the UCPD office at 6054 South Drexel Avenue.

Responsibilities of the UCPD include:

  • Attending to the immediate needs of the victim, including personal safety and prompt medical care.
  • When appropriate, broadcasting a description of the offender.
  • Notifying the Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call if the victim is a student.
  • Providing victims with information concerning the importance of preserving evidence, and the rights of victims and the University’s responsibilities regarding orders of protection, no-contact orders, and other similar court orders.

The UCPD recommends the prompt reporting of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Nevertheless, individuals should not be reluctant to file a report at a later date. Reporting an incident does not obligate a person to press charges.

Chicago Police Department:
9-1-1 (24-hours) or 9-9-1-1 from a campus phone

Anyone preferring not to report a matter to the University of Chicago Police Department may contact the Chicago Police Department.

Confidential Resources

For individuals in need of immediate helpthese resources – including the University of Chicago Police Department and the University of Chicago Medicine’s Mitchell Emergency Room – are available 24/7. The Sexual Assault Dean on Call (SADoC) is also available to students 24/7.

It is important to know that University employees, depending on their role, have different abilities to maintain confidentiality. For further information about University resources and the levels of confidentiality regarding complaints of sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment), dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking, see this chart. [insert link].

Some University employees (referred to as “Individuals with Title IX Reporting Responsibilities”) are required to report all incidents of sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment), dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking to the Title IX Coordinator for the University.  Individuals with Title IX Reporting Responsibilities include faculty and instructors, RAs, Resident Heads, Resident Masters, TAs, preceptors, administrative assistants, UCPD staff, and other university employees. Please note that reporting an incident to the Title IX Coordinator for the University or the Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Students is private, and it does not mean the person who experienced sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking somehow loses control of the process. To the contrary, the Title IX Coordinators are here to advise members of our community on their options regarding remaining anonymous, confidentiality, the University’s process for investigating complaints of sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking, and the University’s disciplinary process.  Indeed, in some cases, individuals choose not to move forward with the investigation process, but still request support services.

The following resources are available to provide support, resources, and information. These individuals do not share identifying information about people or incidents without the person’s consent.
