Reports can be made to DePaul Public Safety

Lincoln Park campus 773/325-7777, Loop campus 312/362-8400).


Anonymous Reporting:

Misconduct Reporting Hotline:  You can report anonymously through the Misconduct Reporting Hotline (877-236-8390) or at www.depaul.ethicspoint.com. 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  These reports will be sent to the Title IX Coordinator who will make every effort to respond, but the University's ability to respond to an anonymous report may be limited.


Non-Emergency Reporting:

Title IX Coordinator:  Karen Tamburro is the Title IX Coordinator for DePaul University.  The Title IX Coordinator's Office is located on in 131 Levan in Lincoln Park and the 8th floor of the Daley Building (14 East Jackson) in the loop. Please call (312-362-8970) or email (titleixcoordinator@depaul.edu).

Responsible Employees:  All DePaul faculty and staff who have not otherwise been designated as confidential reporting resources (see below) are “responsible employees.”  Title IX requires that when a responsible employee learns of sex discrimination, including sexual or relationship violence, that individual is required to promptly advise the Title IX Coordinator or other appropriate designees. Because of this, please note that, although DePaul takes confidentiality very seriously, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed when informing DePaul employees of incidents of sexual or relationship violence. 

You can electronically make a report online here.​
