In 2015, the Attorney General's Office led the effort to pass the Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act. Under this law, public and private colleges and universities in Illinois must meet several requirements aimed at raising awareness about and addressing campus sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
These requirements include:
All Illinois colleges and universities are required to submit their annual report by November 1 of each year. The Attorney General's Office is required to post on its website a list of all colleges and universities that fail to comply with reporting requirements defined by the law.
The compliance lists for each reporting year indicate which Illinois higher education institutions have provided a full report, those that have provided incomplete reports and those that have failed to submit a report entirely. These lists only address compliance with the Act's requirement that each school submit an annual report. The list should not be construed as providing an opinion or analysis about the contents of a school's report or a school's degree of compliance with the Act as a whole.
