Procedures & Reports

Filing a Complaint or Reporting Concerns

Illinois State University strives to foster an academic, work, and living environment that is free from all forms of harassment and discrimination in accordance with law and University Anti-Harassment and Non-Discrimination Policy 1.2.

If you wish to submit a complaint to OEOA to initiate a review of allegations of harassment and discrimination related to a person's race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, order of protection, gender identity and expression, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, genetic information, unfavorable military discharge, or status as a veteran in employment, educational programs and activities, or admissions, you may do so in any of the following ways:

Complaint Procedures

Please note, if you fill out the incorrect form, OEOA will still review the information and help you find the correct process.

Filing an Accommodation Request

To initiate a request for a reasonable accommodation, employees and job applicants must provide information about their medical condition, job, and accommodation request. Medical documentation is often required to substantiate the disability and the need for a reasonable accommodation. Employees and job applicants may submit to OEOA information regarding their medical condition, job, accommodation request and medical documentation in any of the following ways:

You may also download or print the following documents to submit the required information to OEOA:

The Employment Accommodation Request form is completed by the employee/job applicant and provides information about their medical condition, job/position that they are applying for, and accommodation request.

The Healthcare Provider form is completed by the employee/job applicant healthcare provider and provides information regarding their medical condition and information on recommended accommodations.

Please note that neither the employee/job applicant nor their healthcare providers are required to use the University forms if there is another means in which you would like to provide the necessary information.

Requests for reasonable accommodation for employees/job applicants will be reviewed in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act Policy 1.3 and the Reasonable Accommodation Procedures 1.3.1.

Making an Anonymous Report

The University has partnered with NAVEX EthicsPoint,a third-party reporting service, to provide an option for individuals to share concerns 24 hours a day, seven days a week, either online or via a toll-free telephone number. While we prefer that you use existing campus reporting methods, this reporting service is another way you can voice concerns, especially when you wish to remain anonymous. Given the anonymous nature of these reports, in certain instances the University may be limited in its ability to respond to an allegation, including initiating an investigation or taking protective measures.

When you make an anonymous report via the EthicsPoint website or the toll-free telephone number, you will receive a unique reference number that you may use to report back and answer any follow-up questions. To make an anonymous report, please complete the electronic form on the Ethics Point Website or call 833-254-2202.

EthicsPoint is NOT a 911 or Emergency Service. Do not use this site to report events presenting an immediate threat to life or property. Reports submitted through this service may not receive an immediate response. If you require emergency assistance, please call 911.

All Responsible Employees are still required to report reportable crimes and incidents (including but not limited to sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, sexual assault, etc.) appropriately by following the required University procedures. An anonymous report via EthicsPoint does not satisfy such requirements. To determine if you are a Responsible Employee, identify reportable crimes and incidents as well as required reporting procedures, please visit the Equal Opportunity Mandatory Reporting Website or contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access by phone at (309) 438-3383 or via email at
