It is recognized that some students may wish to anonymously communicate incidents of sexual and gender-based misconduct with college administration.  The three options for students to anonymously report to the college are detailed below.

Anonymous Reporting Options – For student use only

  • Anonymous Reporting Form – You may print this form and submit the completed, hard copy to the Director of Title IX Compliance via campus mail. Place the completed form in an addressed, sealed envelope and mail via campus mail slots in Balfour Hood. No stamp necessary.
  • LiveSafe App – You can submit anonymous reports of sexual and gender-based misconduct via the LiveSafe app. Reports filed through LiveSafe will be sent anonymously to Wheaton Public Safety. Click here to download the app through iTunes. Click here to download the app through Google Play.
