On June 27, 2012 the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act (325 ILCS 5) was amended to include personnel of institutions of higher learning as mandated reporters in the state of Illinois (HB3887). As a person working for Eastern Illinois University, you are now a mandated reporter of child abuse and neglect.

All personnel are required to sign the DCFS (ANCRA) form acknowledging this responsibility.  This is a one-time requirement.
