Title IX Coordinator
2 East South Street
Galesburg, IL 61401
If someone comes to you for help, recognize that s/he might be struggling with painful feelings—anger, fear, denial, or embarrassment.
Provide support, give assurance that College resources are available to help, and offer assistance to access these sources.
Suggestions for how to help survivors:
The College also has an online mechanism for anonymous reporting of acts of sexual misconduct with complete confidentiality to the Department of Campus Safety: www.knox.edu/witness/silent.html. These reports will be sent to the Title IX Coordinator who will make every effort to respond, but the College's ability to respond to an anonymous report may be limited.
The College recognizes that an individual who has been drinking or using drugs at the time of an incident of sexual misconduct may be hesitant to make a report because of potential disciplinary consequences. An individual who reports sexual misconduct will not be subject to disciplinary action by the College for personal consumption of alcohol or drugs at or near the time of the incident, provided that any such violations did not/do not endanger the health or well-being of any other individual. The College may, however, initiate an educational discussion or pursue other educational remedies regarding alcohol or other drugs.
