Interpersonal Violence Resources and Prevention

Confidential Support Service

Free and confidential services are available at the EIU Counseling Clinic. Call 217-581-3413 to speak with someone and/or to schedule an appointment. Jessica Cobert (formerly Milburn), counselor and confidential advisor, or the on-call counselor, would be happy to meet with you.

The Sexual Assault Prevention Specialist at the Counseling Clinic may provide the following:

  • Ongoing source of support and advocacy for survivors.
  • Information on available university and community resources.
  • Review reporting options and accompany survivor to file either a police or university report – if the survivor chooses to do so.
  • Accompany survivors to needed appointments or meetings.
  • Assist in exploring options for a change in residence.
  • Assist in arranging for contact with course instructors and advocating for accommodations needed to maintain academic progress.

Talking with someone at the Counseling Clinic does not mean that a report has been filed with any of the reporting options. The Counseling Clinic will assist with reporting only if the student desires and provides verbal and written permission. Filing a report is separate from accessing needed support services. 

If the alleged perpetrator is also a student, the Counseling Clinic may provide supportive services as well. This is on a case by case basis. Counseling Staff ensure that confidentiality is maintained and a safe, supportive environment is available to all students who engage in services at the Clinic. If you have questions about confidentiality, or its limits, a counselor may speak with you to answer your questions.

See the Resource Section for additional supportive services.
