All University personnel (including student employees) are required to complete Mandatory Reporting Training (previously known as Crime Reporting Training) upon hire, as well as annually during the month of October to better educate themselves on these state and federal mandates and available resources.

New employees (including student employees) will receive an email inviting them to complete Mandatory Reporting Training (MRT) within a fews weeks after being hired and will be required to complete the online training within 30 days of receipt of that email.
Once completion of the Mandatory Reporting Training module is affirmed in the training system, the employee may print a Certificate of Completion from the link provided in the training. This certificate is for your records only and does not have to be submitted to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access.
Training should only be accessed through the link provided in the email sent to each University employee from Training@ilstu.edu, and your completion is only recorded in the training system. The 2021-2022 Mandatory Reporting Training consists of three training modules. Each module must be completed to satisfy the requirements. These PDF's are available to review for a reference only.
