Sexual Assault and Interpersonal Violence Resources and Prevention

University Procedures 

The Office of Student Standards (217-581-3827) are most often the department on campus that handle University procedures and sanctions for sexual assault and interpersonal violence when those involved are students.  Student Standards staff are trained in assisting students through the process of reporting and a hearing if such occurs.  Decisions are based on the "preponderance of evidence" which means that the information available points to that it, more likely than not, occurred. 

University Disciplinary Procedures in Cases of Alleged Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking:

  • The University provides a prompt, fair, and impartial investigation and resolution.
  • The accuser and the accused may have others present during any University disciplinary proceeding, and they may be accompanied by an advisor of their choice at meetings related to the proceeding as well as at the proceeding.
  • The University will provide written documentation to both the accuser and the accused regarding:
    • The outcome of the University disciplinary proceeding
    • The University’s procedures for the accused and the accuser to appeal the results
    • Any change in the results that occur prior to the time the results become final
    • When the results become final
